       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 below.

       -f <command>
              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

       -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

       -i <path>
              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.

       -p <path>

       -help  Show summary of options.
