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

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
