    Are tools like octave and matlab essentially dying? It seems like pandas, and now arrow, essentially fit the role that those once supported, within, of course, a better programming language!

      Do either octave or matlab have a dataframe data structure? Pandas is more competition for R or Excel than Matlab or Octave, I think.

        I dont actually know what a “dataframe” is, but both octave and matlab are optimized to work on matrices of high dimensionality. I assume thats at least similar enough to a “dataframe” to not be completely incompatible functionally, no?
