I think matlab has improved a lot lately with OOP. Unfortunately octave hasn't
been able to catch matlab in this respect. They just released 3.2.x with OOP
support comparable with matlab some 5 years ago. (Basically you need to create
each class in separate directory with lot of boilerplate code).
Also data visualization with octave doesn't just rock.

I'll agree. It's just your previous posts that motivates me to browse more and
gives me the confident that scipy/ python is worthwhile to study. It seems
that octave/ matlab do have a more specific (or narrow) scope than scipy/
python. I'm allready confident that learning scipy/ python pays dividens in
