As of Scilab 5.5.0, an external_object module is shipped with Scilab and ease interconnection for reflect-able (or introspect-able) languages. The goal of this project is to allow calls to the .NET assemblies from Scilab.
Use-cases can be :
- call Word or Excel methods
- Use the .NET SDK to build native forms
- call thirdparty softwares providing a .NET API
The project has been started at http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/dnims .
As reference, the developer have to take a look at JIMS (for Java) which is shipped with Scilab and PIMS (for Python) which is an external module.
