// Install a module

// Install a specific version
atomsInstall(["toolbox_2" "2.0"]);

// Install several modules
atomsInstall(["toolbox_4" "1.0" ; "toolbox_2" "1.0"]);

// Install a module in the user section

// Install a module in the allusers section
// (write access on SCI directory is needed):
atomsInstall(["toolbox_6" "1.0";"toolbox_3" "1.0"], ..

// Get the list of installed modules:
disp( atomsGetInstalled() );

// Cleaning :)
atomsRemove(["toolbox_1"; ..
             "toolbox_2"; ..
             "toolbox_3"; ..
             "toolbox_4"; ..

Example 2: Installing a local module. As well as installing modules from the central repository, you can also install modules directly from your own machine.

// Display some additional information

// Install a module

// Get the list of installed modules:
disp( atomsGetInstalled() );

// Cleaning :)
