QuoteIn practice it's so much easier to use Excel or R when you need to offer a quick solution (coding time) where a factor 10 in performance is completely irrelevant.Yes, this is possible. But it represents one scenario of how developers work and it implies twice the effort (do once on Excel/Malab, then in C++). And it means non-potable software.But why do we need 10 matrix libraries in C++? Fortran never had this problem. C++ 11 could have done a bit it to stabilise things. All that matrix stuff is easy and many of the 10 libraries stop half-way. These days is CS undergrad stuff. I bet there are very few libraries that deal with the issues in my previous post (alglib is the only one I know). Many of these libraries have user-unfriendly install.As I mentioned, students create little matrix libraries them in order to learn even if there are 10 libraries out there.
