===== Original message from Travis Brady | Mon, 10 Oct 2005:
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.
there are one slide (page 18) in a presentation 'Python for
Scientific Computing' by Eric Jones, which shows a comparison
of vector multiplication speed between matlab and python.
i think i found it here: Python Homework Help | Do My Python Assignment Fast
unfortunately the above link is broken, and i've
been unable to find these somewhere else.
