Slightly OT: Scilab newbie documentation

Started by Rune Allnor September 28, 2004
Hi all. 

I�ve downloaded scilab 3.0 from www.scilab.org, and the thing 
appears to run fine on my PC. The documentations pops up for 
just about any conceivable finction.

My problem is that I would like so see some "Getting Started"
type of thing. Does anyone know where I can find such papers?

There are at least two such introductions on the net, both of which are unfortunately unavailable in English: Une introduction a Scilab by Bruno Pincon - there is a German translation Demarrer en Scilab by B. Ycart These two are more than enough to get you started on Scilab - you must know French, though. I hope that one day both of them get updated and translated. Jarek
