- Install Maxima. On terminal type sudo apt-get install maxima
This is the first step to install the Symbolic Toolbox. I can find a windows version of Maxima from Sourceforge.
If I install this, how will Scilab know that it is installed? sudo is some sort of Linux command, but I am using windows,
so how do I do this step? Maybe the installer itself puts the tool into Scilab. I don't know. Feedback needed here! Maxima
seems to be some sort of algebraic equation tool, but was it designed especially for Scilab so that the installation puts it
into the Scilab tools? "On terminal type sudo" is a Linux command, but I am using windows, so I would have to install
Maxima via windows, not Linux, and this can not even be done in a Scilab console, unless there is a way that I do not know
about. So how does Maxima get to be part of Scilab? Maybe by the file browser.
- Download overload-1.3.3.tar
- Extract overload-1.3.3
- On Scilab console, navigate to overload-1.3.3 folder
- Type exec loader.sce in Scilab console
These are the next 4 lines of installation instructions: the tar file is a Linux file, not a windows file type. I can
extract in windows a tar file and hope that when I type in exec loader.sce that the intended results will be
obtained. I also see no way of browsing for a folder in the Scilab console: cut and paste and clearing the
console I can do, but not navigating! I can go to the file browser and find the everload-1.3.3 folder from there.
But how do I exec loader.sce?
