For my postgrad dissertation I had to do a lot of number crunching on
big data files (adaptive digital filtering of millions of datapoints, if
you're interested). I decided to code in Python, and when I hit
performance bottlenecks to shift the critical code into C.
I never hit any performance bottlenecks, and I never used any C.
