[Gsoc] GSoC 2017


Greetings Scilab! 

I am Vikrant Mahajan, an engineering student from India and I came across Scilab few months back when I was looking for a robust tool that I could use for my engineering calculations. I must say I am a very big fan of Scilab, its really easy to use and extremely versatile.
I am really interested in the Scilab GSoC project : Improve PDF generation. The reason I chose this project is because I have strong knowledge in JAVA and I feel extremely confident using it.

But before I submit my proposal I would very grateful to you, if you could provide me with the following details:
1) What are the current problems that are experienced in the PDF generation from XML files?
2)Any specific feature of the PDF generation program that needs improvisation?
3)What can we expect to be different in the improved version of the PDF generator?
4)Approximate workload and time that is required for the completion of the task?

Hoping to hear it soon from you...

P.S.- I wasn't able to communicate to you earlier regarding this project  as I had my Mid-Term Exams.

Sincere Regards
Vikrant Mahajan

Re: GSoC 2017

Hi,

1,2,3) As described in https://wiki.scilab.org/Contributor%20-%20PDF%20generation, the main goal is better quality pdf generation.

4) That's is one of the requeriments for students proposal, they should evaluate and write a schecule and deadline for their chosen project(s). A good starting point for you understand and propose your own improvements, is using the pdf generator.
