Matlab vs. R

This is a discussion on Matlab vs. R within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; I'd take mathematica over 'em both to be honest, but that's because I've used it more....

    oh cool, I didn't even realize matlab could do symbolic calculations.

    >Maple is a subset of Matlab.

    Are you sure about that? Your example is pretty simple, maple can do all kinds of fancy symbolic computations; calculus, factoring, expression simplification, finding closed forms, etc...

    I guess I need to play with Matlab more, I used it for a course once but have always turned to Maple for my math needs.

    I'm sure. I know my example was quite simple, but I am not a symbolic toolbox wizard.
    The Symbolic Math Toolbox incorporates the computation kernel of Maple 10, an efficient and accurate system for symbolic computation from Waterloo Maple Software. The toolbox provides functions for:
    [...]
    You can directly pass a Maple statement or function to the Maple 10 kernel. The kernel performs the computation and returns the resulting symbolic expression to MATLAB, where you can operate directly on the symbolic object.

    Oh I get it, they've actually embedded the Maple engine in the matlab toolkit so you can access it with matlab syntax. nice.
