Talking with someone online in real-time can be a quick way to get things taken care of and is a key resource in the community. Thus, the Scilab IRC channel is another way to take advantage of community support.
IRC channel dedicated to Scilab can be found on OFTC. To connect, you need an IRC client and an account. For example on Windows desktops, you may use Pidgin and on Android devices Revolution IRC. Instructions to use Pidgin for IRC can be seen here. And instructions to register an ID and password here.
Once you have the client installed and registered your ID, you need to tell the client to connect to the server.
In most clients, you can do that by typing:
- /server irc.oftc.net:6667
Once you are connected, join channel #scilab
- /join #scilab
And if you are interested to discuss Modelica Language topics specifically you may join the Modelica Language Discord Server and use the xcos-scicos channel.
