Contributor - Eigen as a linear algebra lib


The idea of this project is to replace the underlying library of linear algebra used into Scilab. For now, most of the matrix computations rely on BLAS / LAPACK (and their optimized version).


  1. Eigen provides a BLAS (and maybe LAPACK) interface. Providing a way to switch to Eigen library could be interested. This work should be trivial.
  2. Extends the Scilab core code to use Eigen native and high performance features.
    The current usage of BLAS/LAPACK should be maintained in this development.
    To be relevant, this work should be only performed in the development branch YaSp

Note: For this work, eigen upstream advices version 3.0.
