Well, now: with MATLAB and S-plus you'll pay more money with R and S-Plus you'll have trouble reading in your non-ascii data with MATLAB and Octave you'll find 3-D arrays don't exist. with Octave, you'll find the graphics suck with Yorick, you'll find the structures inflexible ... so the answer is clearly to go with fooware. Where can I download that from, now? Hugh P.S. I actively like Yorick in many ways and R is also very good and developing rapidly, although it will be a severe culture shock to hard science types. -- ========================================================================== Hugh C.
