Scilab objects, matrices in Scilab

### Description

Matrices are basic objects defined in Scilab. They can be defined as follows:

E=[e11,e12,...,e1n; e21,e22,...,e2n; .... em1,em2,...,emn];

Entries `eij`

can be real or complex numbers, polynomials,
rationals, strings, booleans.

Vectors are seen as matrices with one row or one column.

### Examples

E=[1,2;3,4] E=[%T,%F;1==1,1~=1] s=poly(0,'s'); E=[s,s^2;1,1+s] E=[1/s,0;s,1/(s+1)] E=['A11','A12';'A21','A22']
