             This is a Scilab toolbox to call octave functions. It requires octave to be
installed on the system. You will also need to install the required packages in
octave before you call them from this toolbox. This version on toolbox
supports only doubles as input and output, including complex numbers.

## This toolbox has been built and tested using 
1. OS - Linux Debian 10, Ubuntu 18.10, 19.10 (64-bit)
2. Octave - Version 4.4.1, 5.1.0
3. Scilab - Version 6.0.1, 6.0.2

## Software prerequisites:
Run the following commands in the linux terminal
1. sudo apt-get update
2. sudo apt-get install build-essential
3. sudo apt-get install liboctave-dev
4. sudo apt-get install octave
5. sudo apt-get install scilab

NOTE: Downloaded scilab binaries will not work with this toolbox due to fftw
library mismatch. Scilab HAS to be installed using "sudo apt-get install
scilab" command on the linux terminal.

## Install the required octave packages using the below command in linux
1. sudo apt-get install octave-<pkg name>
For example, to install signal package in octave, do
1. sudo apt-get install octave-signal

## Launch Scilab and run the following commands inside the scilab console
1. cd <path to fossee-scilab-octave-toolbox directory>
2. exec builder.sce
3. exec loader.sce
4. help octave_fun (then execute the examples appearing on the help page to
the toolbox)

## Building the source
In case if executing the builder and loader files in Scilab throw an error
regarding .so files, you probably need to build the toolbox libraries from
source. Do the following on the linux terminal
1. Download the fossee-scilab-octave-toolbox source from
2. Close Scilab, if running
3. cd fossee-scilab-octave-toolbox/src/
4. make clean
5. make
6. make install
Then build the Scilab toolbox
