I am not aware of such direct function.
A trick that I find quite useful is the possibility to copy data from Excel
directly into Scilab via the Windows clipboard.
See ones example below.
// First copy an Excel data range to clipboard then run Scilab commands:
str = clipboard("paste");
M = evstr(strsplit(str,ascii(10)));

Subject: [Scilab-users] Function to read Excel xlsx file into SCILAB
Dear SCILAB users,
is there a direct function available in SCILAB to read an Excel .xlsx file
(Excel 2007 or later) into SCILAB.
I know I could open it in Excel and use the SaveAs menu to first convert it to
.xls file, but a direct SCILAB function would be faster when handling many
Thank you very much.
God bless you.
