Hello, I just want to get people's idea on something: I am using matlab for doing statistical analysis since I am very much used to matlab than using other statistical software. Do you think matlab is good to use for that or do you think it has inherent disadvantages compared to other programs like R? R has a very weird syntax that i have trouble getting used to. I did a quick search on this but could not find anything useful for me. sorry if this is discussed before and please let me know where i can find the discussion Thanks! D.
