Lately folks in my office have started inquiring about the possibility
of porting some Matlab code to Python. They're mostly concerned about
cost and scriptability, but they're worried that the resulting Python
code would be very slow. The current Matlab version of the prime
porting target takes about 2 hours to run start to finish.
So I'm looking to either run some tests to prove that Python can keep up
or take someone else's results from similar tests and evangelize with
I've googled "python vs. matlab" but most results seem to address
differences in the sort of code one has to write to achieve the same
ends, I'm interested in speed.
Anyone have any links or ammunition for the fight?
