RLaB.sea.hqx RLaB Ian Searle email@example.com RLaB is a free linear algebra and plotting package in the spirit of MATLab. The package relies heavily on LAPACK, FFTPACK, and RANLIB sources available from netlib. Plotting routines use PLPLOT from dino.ph.utexas.edu. From the "help INTRO" command: Introduction to RLaB "Our"-LaB. RLaB is a vector and matrix oriented, interactive, interpreted programming LANGUAGE. Although RLaB started as an effort to functionally replace MATLAB, the language and functions are NOT MATLAB replicas. Although the language is similar to MATLAB in some ways there are numerous differences (I hope for the better). The help file MATLAB_DIFF briefly discusses the primary differences between RLaB and MATLAB. If you are a MATLAB expert please read the MATLAB_DIFF file ASAP. The RLaB Primer is also a good starting point for new users. It is short, and provides many introductory examples. Tested no a PowerMac 7100 running system 7.5.1.
