Application: FreeMat
Category: Education (& Science)
Description: FreeMat Portable is a free portable environment for rapid engineering and scientific prototyping and data processing.

FreeMat provides visualization, image manipulation, and plotting as well as parallel programming. (from the website)
Features: (from the FreeMat FAQ)

  • N-dimensional array manipulation (by default, N is limited to 6)
  • Support for 8,16, 32, and 64 bit integer types (signed and unsigned), 32 and 64 bit floating point types, and 64 and 128 bit complex types.
  • Built in arithmetic for manipulation of all supported data types.
  • Support for solving linear systems of equations via the divide operators.
  • Eigenvalue and singular value decompositions
  • Full control structure support (including, for, while, break, continue, etc.)
  • 2D plotting and image display
  • Heterogeneous array types (called “cell arrays” in MATLAB-speak) fully supported
  • Full support for dynamic structure arrays
  • Arbitrary-size FFT support
  • Pass-by-reference support (an IDL feature)
  • Keyword support (an IDL feature)
  • Codeless interface to external C/C++/FORTRAN code
  • Native sparse matrix support
  • Function pointers (eval and feval are fully supported)
  • Classes, operator overloading
  • 3D Plotting and visualization via OpenGL

You know, you should put this

You know, you should put this in the off topic to get your links. Then just move it from the Off Topic to Beta. The link still functions the same Biggrin

And, glad to see another release.

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

I mixed freemat portable with freemat 4.1

I installed freemat portable and over it, unzipped freemat 4.1

The software works fine. I used regshot. I am not an expert, but I see that registry differences before and after runing freemat 4.1 portable, where minimal.

I suggest pack freemat 4.1 on the portable launcher.

It's already in queue to be

It's already in queue to be released. There is a topic for Outdated apps: https://portableapps.com/node/19705. If an outdated app is not already listed, you could post it there to inform the devs about an update.

Feedback?

Alright, considering the downloads this is my most popular app (in development), but where are the test reports? Come on, folks!

Bug report

Quite a few bugs but they all come from Freemat itself. No problem with the fact that it is portable.
Thanks for your work.

No problems for me.

I can't find any issues. This is one of the apps I'd really like to get official.

Out of curiosity

Any long-term test reports possible? Thanks

No problem

I use it a couple of time each week on various platforms (XP to 7) and the only problems I have found were in freemat itself.

Looks good

Splash?

I'm working on the latest FreeMat build. Is there a chance to get a nice splash and push FreeMat Portable to Pre-Release soon?

I support that

Even though I don't care whether it is released or not as long as it works (and for me it does) I know lots of people are missing on this because it is not released.

I have also tried Octave and Scilab and really this is the best one for portable applications, maybe not as complete but faster and smaller.

Thanks, same here. Development Test, Pre-Release or official release doesn't say anything about quality at PortableApps.com.

Well, they can grab it from some other rip-off sites. Usually they announce releases official before PortableApps.com does. Sad

Huhu,

any users around? Over 1,000 downloads of FreeMat Portable and almost no feedback. Guess that's a good sign and maybe I should declare it final. ~2 years testing time is more than enough!

High Res Icon

You have a high res icon somewhere? I noticed the app doesn't have appicon_128.png for me to snag to make the splash.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
