Access to MPI features from Scilab


A MPI interface is provided to Scilab. This interface allows high-performance Message Passing computations.

Like any other MPI applications, Scilab/MPI as be started through the mpirun command usually with the argument -c to specify the number of nodes started.

Supported datatype

The Scilab MPI implementation supports the following Scilab datatypes (under the matrix or scalar form):

  • Double
  • Boolean
  • int (all)
  • String
  • Sparse
  • Boolean Sparse
For now, advanced data structures like list, tlist or mlist are not supported. Opening a new bug report to see them supported is a good way.

Example of Scilab MPI

// TODO. Add an example (PI ?)
