Thanks to Gilberto Xavier, the script can now be run on Mac OS X platforms.

By surfing Scilab channel on Youtube, we can see a video which demonstrate how
to use Scilab and a NIDAQ card for PC-based data acquisition [1]. 
As we all know NIDAQ cards are expensive and these kinds of cards are not much
appropriate for educational purposes, of course IMO.   
So, why not use an open-source software, Scilab, with an open-source low-cost
hardware, Arduino? It's really dish up an incredible taste of freedom! Perhaps a
video may showcase this better:

Well, attached you will see a schematic of a simple circuit which can be used
for real-time temperature monitoring as well as ON/OFF control. 

Attached you will also find a Scilab script to run the GUI which is just a
preliminary version of what I intend to do. I'll try other communication
interfaces such as Ethernet and Wireless LAN later. 

At the end, I would like to thank Bruno Jofret, the author of the original GUI
[2], for his valuable work.
