"In this article, I provide a survey of a number of popular

operate solely in batch mode? Can you use the tool for image or
digital signal processing? Does the tool provide language bindings
to support integration into user applications (such as Python, Tcl,
Java programming languages, and so on)? I also demonstrate the
tools' graphical capabilities. Finally, I identify the strengths of
each tool to help you decide which is best for your computational
task or data visualization..."
