Hi Marco,

Thanks! I hadn't tries [syntax=scilab], but I just did it and it works exactly as expected!
However I could not edit the file scilab.vim which sits (on my machine) in

Meanwhile, out of curiosity I modified the two files 
written by Hans, by naming them (temporarily)
and then by saying 
I could obtain an approximate good result… But since the keywords in Lua and Scilab are quite different, I could not change some of the settings (for instance in Lua the cosine function is called math.cos while in Scilab it is cos: I could not change appropriately the list of such keywords…).

I think for the time being it is simpler for me to use your solution with 

Thanks again,
Best regards: OK
