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
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.
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.
-help Show summary of options.
