I have an open-source thermophysical property library (like REFPROP) that I am trying to wrap using SWIG for scilab.  I'm pretty experienced with the use of SWIG for C#, python, Java, Octave, etc.

For the life of me I cannot get swig to build with this mysterious comment

./configure --with-scilab=<path_scilab_startup_script>
I am a newcomer to scilab (love the idea as there is a lot that is appealing about MATLAB apart from the ridiculous price) but an experienced programmer. What does <path_scilab_startup_script> refer to?

I would like to support linux, OSX and windows.

Will this work on OSX?  Does anyone have binaries for windows?  The build process for swig on windows is truly atrocious.

Thanks,
Ian
