Is that really true? (The large-matrix number crunching, not the
proper programming paradigm ;-)
By no scientific means of evaluation, I was under the impression that
the opposite was true to a smaller degree.
Also, a lot of the times that I'm dealing with extremely large
matrices, they're of the sparse variety, which matlab currently
handles with a bit more ease (and transparency) to the user.
