MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, Fortran and Python.
Hereof, why do we use Matlab?
MATLAB has several advantages over other methods or languages: Its basic data element is the matrix. A simple integer is considered an matrix of one row and one column. Several mathematical operations that work on arrays or matrices are built-in to the Matlab environment.
What is the function of Matlab?
In MATLAB, functions are defined in separate files. The name of the file and of the function should be the same. Functions operate on variables within their own workspace, which is also called the local workspace, separate from the workspace you access at the MATLAB command prompt which is called the base workspace.
What is Matlab API?
Use Matrix API and MEX API functions in gateway and computational routines to interact with data in the MATLAB® workspace. These APIs are part of the MATLAB C/C++ and Fortran API Reference library. To use these functions, include the mex header, which declares the entry point and interface routines.
