this is a fairly mute discussion.
Matlab is good for some stuff
C is good for other stuff.
yes they do have a large area of intersect. Use depending on your

C i can make something do exactly what i want to do and understand
everything, but Matlab I can visualise data really easily and perform common
engineering functions quickly.
