GNU Octave uses the Matlab language, though not all the libraries that are available for Matlab are avaialble for GNU Octave.  This does not prevent you from coding these functions up yourself.  The GNU Octave team has a reporting method that allows you to report if a function does not work the same as it does in Matlab.

 

GNU Octave is also uses the interpreted method.  Both Python and C# are interpreted, but I am not sure about R.  I know of it, but I have not used it.

MATLAB Language and GNU Octave?

Adam -- I don't think you actually explicityl stated if GNU Octave (the simulator) uses MATLAB (the language) or not.

Also, you say MATLAB is interpreted ... does GNU Octave use the same approach?

I've heard that Python with extensions (NumPy, SciPy, etc) is pretty popular in some circles, especially bio-informatics.  I've used & like Python, but haven't used the numeric extensions.

There's also the R language, but IIRC it's more oriented towards statistics.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
