scipython is an interface to Python from Scilab.
It allows to call and manipulate almost any Python (2.7) function, object, or
data from the Scilab interpreter.
a = math.sqrt(16);
scipython embeds Python 2.7 with numpy, and uses it if no other installation of
Python is detected on the user's system.
This toolbox is based on the former toolbox PIMS.
The tutorial http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/pims/page/Tutorial
explains how to use scipython.
