Multimat: A generic frontend for matematical engines
All the free matematical engines (octave, scilab, ...) are partially compatible with matlab, but compatibility fails when it comes to user interface commands, like uicontrol, uimenu, etc
The only solution by now is tk_octave, a package that patches octave in such a way that is able to comunicate with a tk interpreter
What I am developing here is a new possible architecture: A user interface that will deflect the user commands to octave or tk in a transparent way. Therefore compatibility should be achived outside octave.
WARNING: This project will be delayed and maybe discontinued due that it overlaps with a previously existing project.
I will deflect therefore the developement on Scilab to this project and I have started a new project for the Octave Matlab compatibility, called octawrap.
