Essential Comparisons of the Matlab and R Languages
We assume a working knowledge of either Matlab or R. For either language, there are many books that describe the basics for beginners. However, a brief comparison of the two languages might help someone familiar with one language read code written in the other.
Matlab and R have many features in common. Some of the differences are trivial while others can be troublesome. Where differences are minor, we offer code in only one language, which will be often R.
We will use typewriter font for any text meant to be interpreted as Matlab or R code, such as plot(heightfd).
