Do I rely on GSL for C++ and C# as Matlab surprises with unknown runtime dependency with Builder NE for DotNet

(Last Updated On: February 28, 2014)

Do I rely on GSL for C++ and C# as Matlab surprises with unknown runtime dependency with Builder NE for DotNet?

As I move into hardcore algorithm development, I am coming across many surprises with the integration  of Matlab and C# with Builder NE toolbox. Despite Mathworks guarantee of 100% compatbility of all Matlab functions, this does appear to be the case with egcitest or jcitest. It needs a dependency MAT file as part of the generated DLL. Despite numerous attempts to include it in the DLL, my C# always got exceptions of the MAT file not being found. It reminds me of all these open sources options I posted earlier:

I don’t want to turn this into another rant but I will say again: I should have listened to the London Quant.
This week has been a disaster as a time waster. Man, develop your own algorithms within C++ or .NET. I should have listened. Damn be damn. Anyhoo….so here we are trying to work with another library like the GSL with .NET. This is my next challenge as I am still working away on this pair trading demo.
So is there really a need for a monster tool like Matlab if I end up writing my own algos?

Crap I do hate delays but I consider it a learning process.  I need a break from all this. TGIF
