What do the experts say about R debugging capabilities vs highly productive Matlab


These were the instant responses I got on my Twitter stating R has no debugger:

  1. @revodavid@quantlabs Also ESS has a debugger. And the interactive debugging functionality in R is getting substantially better.

  2. Revolution R Enterprise has a debugger for R http://bit.ly/14o5wNO  RT @quantlabs: #Rstats has no #debugger

First off, thanks to all who responded

I have no intention of buying any commercial products for R as this is why I use Matlab with the other advantages I mention. As for a command line debugger, haha you are funny. Get with the times. Interactive debuggers in tools like Eclipse, Visual Studio and even Matlab are standard de facto. That is what makes me productive and pretty well learn new stuff.

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
