       freemat - Mathematics Framework




       This  manual  page  documents briefly the freemat command.  This manual
       page was written for  the  Debian  distribution  because  the  original
       program does not have a manual page.

       freemat  is  a  free  environment  for rapid engineering and scientific
       prototyping and data processing. It is similar  to  commercial  systems
       such  as  MATLAB  from Mathworks, and IDL from Research Systems, but is
       Open Source.  freemat is available under the GPL license.


       freemat follow the usual GNU command line  syntax,  with  long  options
       starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is included

       -f <command>
              Runs freemat in command mode.  freemat  will  startup,  run  the
              given  command,  and  then quit.  Note that this option uses the
              remainder of the command line, so use it last.

       -nogui Suppress the GUI for freemat.

              Do not force the plastique style for GUI.

       -noX   Disables the graphics subsystem.

       -e     uses a dumb terminal interface (no command line  editing,  etc.)
              This   flag   is   primarily  used  when  you  want  to  capture
              input/output to freemat from another application.

       -i <path>
              Install freemat - provide the path to the freemat data directory
              (containing the scripts, help and other files.).  Normally these
              are installed in /usr/share/freemat but regardless, you must run
              freemat -i once to indicate the location of this directory. Note
              that in  this  mode,  freemat  will  only  update  its  internal
              configuration and then exit.

       -p <path>

       -help  Show summary of options.
