A few months ago I did a little simulation in Java and configured it and analyzed the data via MATLAB. It was really fun! It “just worked” and did so really well. Not much more to share than that, but definitely worth sharing.
This link explains how you can annotate MATLAB code with markup to help communicate your ideas and result to others.
For some tasks I already know that it will beat the LaTeX or copy and paste into Word lifecycle.
Last night I wanted to figure out how to get rid of the “Start Menu” on the bottom of the IDE and found a solution here. That got me digging into the docs about Java integration. Wow; it just works and seems to work really well. The interop is seamless. For the little coding I did to play around with loading files (it is built in but I was still curious to know) it was really easy to use. Awesome.
Out of the box a lot of us Windows users who added all of the Octave-Forge packages are disappointed to find that the plot function produces an invisible window.
Here is the problem and solution:
Realistic solution at this moment, do not install the oct2mat package when you install octave with octave-forge packages if you do not use this package. One one of different solutions is to execute
pkg rebuild -noauto oct2mat
at the octave prompt and then restart octave. The operation results in the oct2mat package not to be auto-loaded in startup. When you want to use oct2mat, execute “pkg load oct2mat” command.

Here is an interesting blog about “running” MATLAB on a GPU.
Could be very interesting considering how prevalent MATLAB is in the scientific community.
Here is the link for a utility that converts MATLAB code to C so that Doxygen can generate documentation from it.
