hi all,

I have a question. Not so straightforward and I admit not much sense. But will there ever come a time when C++ becomes obsolete and Matlab is the best IDE?

You are right, the question do not make sense :)

C++ is a language and Matlab is not an IDE. So, I am not
sure what are you asking there.

May be you can try again?

Nasser,

Basically what I am trying to find out is whether it's possible for Matlab to overtake or compete at least with the performance capabilities of Visual Studio perhaps in the future. In terms of processing speed for very large datasets especially.

cheers

I have no idea, I mean these things are hard to measure, aren't they?

What you should look at is to choose the right tool for the problem
you want to solve.

If you want to do numerical math and modeling and simulation and such,
then I would think Matlab would be much better/easier than Microsoft
Visual studio C/C++/C#/Basic/J#/B/K+/D stuff.

But if you want to build data base application, or some generic user
interfaces and games, database, and such, I would think it will be
the other way around. I do not think this will change with version numbers.

Matlab is not a 'general' purpose system like the others are. it is
really a specific tool/language for specific problems, mostly engineering
and numerical stuff, and mostly for modeling and simulation.

But someone who is an expert is these things may be can give better
information.
