This module looks great. However, although it is successfully compiled within the ATOMS
chain and is distributed for all OSes among which Windows_x64 that i am using, i do not
see it in the ATOMS GUI of Scilab 5.5.2, even after updating the list of modules.
Actually, the module does not appear in the windows.gz archive that the ATOMS GUI
... Still a server issue, as
described on  The archive
is badly built, or the module
is somewhat locked ; the result is the same: actually not available.

Hoping for it soon,
Best regards

We are aware of this problem and are trying to fix it. I can confirm the package builds 
correctly; the problem appears to happen as the binary version is submitted to the Atoms 
server. I will send out more info once we have found the problem!

Hoping this doesn't cause any inconvenience :-)

Hi again,

The Atoms for Scilab 5.5.x cache was regenerated, and the cache generation process was 
fixed. I justed tested downloading/installing it through Atoms in Scilab 5.5.2 and it 
worked on my linux64 machine. We may have a temporary problem on MacOSX.

Hope the delay wasn't a problem !

Hopefully the process will be much much faster for your next toolbox ;-)

Bad news for built process:
I tried now to install on WIN64, but the .zip file seems to be an invalid zip (or damaged).

It works now. I selected a previouse built zip file. I tried it on WIN64 and was able to
install it.
