I have been studying Engineering at university now and have come across a language which is apprently an industry standard - MatLab. It is a scripting language very close to C at times yet comes with a vast selection of tool boxes and specialised functions for engineering. I wondered whether it would be a good idea to put up a forum about it as if it is a standard Ill bet that many engineers around the world can contribute and help other people learn it! As I said it looks based on C and even includes functions such as fprintf and strcat..... any thoughts?

Hey there, 1o0oBhP ....... err, that was quite a mouthful (err, keyboardful) spelling out your name :) In any case, we like to make it a general policy not to create new forums until we see a need. The phrase "build it and they will come" doesn't seem to work when creating new forums. Therefore, if we see a significant number (15+) of MatLab threads being posted in the Computer Science forum or the Other Languages forum, then I'll go ahead and rally those threads together into aq new MatLab forum. However, if members aren't talking about MatLab now, creating a little MatLab link off of the forum index isn't really going to change anything ;) Thanks for your suggestion though. I'll keep an eye out for any MatLab threads :)

Dude, I think you are not aware of www.kluid.com , it is a MATLAB dedicated forum, you might like to check them out.

:idea: R

:?: :?:

I didn't think it was possible to be aware of a forum that is not yet in existence.

ohh, I just checked out their site. It seems they are "restructuring" it .... sorry about that. I used lot of MATLAB material from them, last month.

:]

www.kluid.com says the site will be launching on May 30th.

i got a matlab question here....i was using the GRADIENT function in matlab and apparently it only uses 2nd order finite difference to compute the derivative.....so can anyone please tell me how can i change the order there and use 4th order finite difference.....

Thanks

That's why I cut'n'paste :icon_smile:

I've notice quite a few MATLAB questions in Legacy and Other Languages. And for a period of time, only Matlab questions were asked. It seems to make sense to open a section if we can find a moderator.

However, if members aren't talking about MatLab now...

Oh, but they are.... (I think) :icon_wink:

There is a matlab discussion forum available at The Math Root. You can also find forums at kluid and mathworks.
