Matlab can be used from home through "virtual lab":
Matlab is available on Unix in the Middlesex College labs, and on MS windows on some machines
in MC10 and MC8:
- MC8 - left hand side facing the wall
- MC10 - right hand facing wall with chalk board
It is also available on Windows in the general student labs, see
http://www.uwo.ca/its/genlabs/ for general lab locations.
There is some freely available software on the web, however it is your responsibility to make sure your code compiles in the matlab (you can check so by using a university lab)
The information below is cortesy Karim (thanks!)
Highly compatible with matlab, for Linux
Highly compatible with matlab, for Windows
Close to matlab, but not really compatible (for example : matrice creation : it uses commas instead of spaces to separate values on the same row), but there is converters from matlab to scilab and the other way.
