#### Common tasks in 6.302 using Octave, Scilab, and Matlab

This document describes how to perform common tasks in 6.302 using Octave, Scilab, and Matlab. The first two software packages are free alternatives to Matlab, and their use is encouraged.

#### Speed in choosing a data analysis software.

Speed of execution is an important aspect in choosing a data analysis software. Since it can vary from a factor 10, or more, on the same computer, this can make the difference between a quick-reacting package and another one that seems to takes hours to c
