Is Matlab similar to C?

MATLAB is similar to Wolfram's Mathematica, while having some differences. MATLAB is a specialized language for scientific and technical computing, while C++ and Python are general purpose programming languages. MATLAB is more of a scripting language compared to compiled languages like C/C++.

Hereof, what is Matlab written on?

90% or more of the commands used in the code you write in MATLAB, are written in C++ (if they are not written in MATLAB). Some perl is used there too for regex and stuff like that. But, the MATLAB desktop/UI, plotting UIs, and the GUIDE package are mostly written in Java.
