Open source software for numerical computation

Skip to main content


Scilab is a useful environment in the context of HPC, allowing the simple development of applications. However, when application data grows, the lack of parallel constructs limits its use for real cases. 

Hence, the goal is to have an interface with DIET that can distribute Scilab tasks on several nodes over Grids or over Cloud platforms.



  • Linux
  • DIET 2.7
  • Scilab 5.3.0 (or later)
  • Classical gcc compiler suite
  • libstdc++6.1.15
