Probably quit a large and nice job, to embed MatLab in Python.
But, I've the idea I'm missing something ...
... coming from MatLab, a few months ago I tried Python,
... and at the moment I've decided to move completely from MatLab to Python.
All new programs will be written in Python and the old programs will be translated.

Is my decision wrong ?

What can do MatLab, that can't be done in Python (SciPy) ?
(Ok I accept there's no SimuLink/PowerSim).

Both environments can create any program you like.
If MatLab is your standard / favorite why not stick to MatLab ?

Please enlighten me.
