Usually to be found submerged in a pile of assorted cabling and electronics somewhere in the PlasticLogic? lab.
I got /Married? to Koryne on the 14th of July 2007.
I post on various ReligionMatters and CategoryChristian pages, and also consider myself to be part of CategoryRandom and occasionally CategoryVoices. I'm a Christian who tends to consider denominations to be somewhat missing the point. Oh - and I am what's generally known as a spelling pedant. Unrepentantly. Also, I am very bad at updating pages.
Going to Church doesnt make you a Christian, just as standing in a garage doesnt make you a car.
JESUS 1 1. Jesus is born. 2. He sees a world of pain. 3. He shoulders that pain. 4. He finds an answer. 5. He takes it onto himself. 6. He dies in agony.
JESUS 2 1. A thief asks Jesus, Why? 2. I will suffer, Jesus says, 3. Or they will suffer. 4. I chose myself.
This is a space where I put questions about technical things.
Past questions. Will excel accept regexes as filenames for I/O?
Will a gate-drain short make a transistor latch?
Also, that's a very silly question, don't ask it again you terrible physicist.
Present question. How hard is MatLab?? I have the opportunity to get training in it.
The answer very much depends on what you want to do with it. As a programming language it's on the more intuitive end of the spectrum, but has its quirks as they all do. Its ability to execute implicit for loops over vectors, arrays and cell-arrays provides some very powerful programming constructs that can take a lot of getting used to. Depending on the training course, they may well be able to show you some tips & tricks using less-commonly-known language features that can make things quite a bit easier if you're doing anything vaguely complex with it.
If you want to use one of the 80+ toolboxes that are available, then the answer may vary wildly with the specific toolbox. AlexChurchill only really has experience with Simulink, Stateflow, Real-Time Workshop, and the Parallel Computing Toolbox; there are lots of others, with a wide variety of conventions and toolbox-specific incantations. --AC
