This module opens a BackDoor into Scilab workspace.
It works by creating a new thread that listens on requests on a TCP port. Each string send to that thread is executed in the Scilab workspace and a result is sent back to the caller when requested.
For testing load the module (when the module is loaded you should see something like:
BackDoor: listening to commands on TCP port 28020
and then try opening a telnet connection
telnet 188.8.131.52 28020
and start writing Scilab commands as you would on the command window (with a new line in the end). NOTE: the port used is 27020 in windows and 27020 + UID in Linux. This is to allow multiple users using the module.
The result of the calculation is saved in the bd_result variable in Scilab.
If you need to run a command that shouldn't be saved in bd_result you can prefix your command with "\", for example "\load('file.dat')".
Also if you type a '@' you will get the value of bd_result(in binary form of a C double). If you type "?" you will get the value of bd_result in text.
The intention of this module is to use it with PowerDEVS (https://sourceforge.net/projects/powerdevs) in order to process simulation results in the Scilab enviroment.
