Cannot afford expensive Matlab or Simulink? Open source solutions like Octave, Scilab, Scicos Python, or R
Here are some Matlab clones but don’t ask me on Matlab compatibility because I don’t know
R and Python would be better options if you don’t need a Matlab clone.
As for R, meh. It can do the job but I played with it for 6 months. Python looks better now and is even as fast as Matlab with even giving C/C++ a run for its money. I have not played with Python but I will be watching it in coming months for general scripting.
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
