Talking with someone online in real-time can be a quick way to get things taken care of and is a key resource in the community. Thus, the Scilab IRC channel is another way to take advantage of the community support.

IRC channel dedicated to Scilab can be found on OFTC. To connect, you need an IRC client. Once you have the client installed, you need to tell it to connect to the server.

  • In most clients, you can do that by typing:
  • Once you are connected, join channel #scilab
     /join #scilab
