The Scilab Graphic Editor is the underlying Scilab function for the graphic object editor, the visual tool available from the graphics windows Edit menu. ged() is of limited use by itself (most the functionalities are available from other functions), and is only present to ensure that all Object Editor functionalities are also available in the Scilab language.

Note that, the Scilab Graphic Editor is implemented using the Tcl/Tk language; it is not available on MacOS, where Tcl/TK is not available.
