Interact Scilab with other tools
Did you know Scilab has functionalities to interact with other tools or facilitate the migration from other software?
Import/Export data to/from Scilab
Scilab can read data from Excel and write data in Excel spreadsheets thanks to a dedicated external module. xls link is available via ATOMS.
Matlab® binary data files
Scilab can read and write Matlab MAT-files (binary data files) using loadmatfile and savematfile functions. Those functions convert Matlab data types to Scilab corresponding data types and conversely.

Migrate to Scilab
From Excel® to Scilab
Using macros in Excel is like using Scilab functions. Scilab gives users the possibility to import data from Excel to Scilab (with xls link module for example). Users can then convert their Excel-macros in using Scilab equivalent functions.
From Matlab® to Scilab
Users who are interested in migrating from Matlab® to Scilab are provided with several Tools:
Using Matlab to Scilab conversion help tools
The Matlab to Scilab dictionary
The matfile2sci function which allows the conversion of Matlab binary data files to Scilab binary data files.
Call Scilab from another software
Thanks to Scilab XLL external module, users can call Scilab from Excel and get the Scilab results back to Excel spreadsheet.
Using the LabVIEW to Scilab Gateway, users can write Scilab scripts in LabVIEW and call Scilab to analyze and visualize their data.
ModeFRONTIER can benefit from the Scilab capabilities to perform advanced and intensive tasks. A Scilab node is available within ModeFRONTIER under the form of an External Scheduler Bridge.
