A Matlab-like scientific computing environment in Scala
The scripting language is based on the Scala programming language enhanced with high level scientific operators and with an integrated environment that provides a Matlab-like working style.
In addition, all the huge libraries of Java scientific code can be easily accessible. The main potential of the ScalaLab is speed and flexibility.
Furthermore, ScalaLab includes the ScalaSci scripting engine, based on the new Scala programming language, that obtains scripting speed by resolving method calls at compile time ("statically typed").
The code for scripting is really fast, close to Java (sometimes slower, sometimes faster), and usually faster from equivalent Matlab .m scripts.
ScalaLab is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the ScalaLab utility on your Mac are available HERE.
