Frequently Asked Questions


  • Are RTSX functions case-sensitive?
    Yes. However, to make a user’s life easier, all lower-case variation is allowed for most functions. Ex. both PlotRobot and plotrobot works. The exception are those few whose lower-case alternative might crash with some other Scilab function name. A very important one is Link( ). If you type all lower-case “link” it will invoke a linker function not related to RTSX at all. I do not want RTSX to override that function because some user might need it.


  • How to install RTSX?
    There is no installer. Just unzip the package, change Scilab working directory to that place, and issue command exec(‘startup_rtsx.sce’,-1). That’s all it take to load RTSX functions to Scilab workspace.
