2.2.0.0.1 Scalars

Scalars are either real or complex numbers. The values of
scalars can be assigned to variable names chosen by the user.
--> a=5+2*%i
a =
5. + 2.i
--> B=-2+%i;
--> b=4-3*%i
b =
4. - 3.i
--> a*b
ans =
26. - 7.i
-->a*B
ans =
- 12. + i

Note that Scilab evaluates immediately lines that
end with a carriage return. Instructions that ends with a semi-colon
are evaluated but are not displayed on screen.
