Matlab is pretty easy to learn. Easier than perl, I would say. As it was stated before, matlab is array oriented. (Even scalars are represented by 1x1 arrays of doubles). I was a Math major concentrating on Applied Math. My last year of school was spent in the computer lab writing Matlab code. I've forgotten it now since I don't use it anymore, but I bet that it wouldn't take me very long to get back in the grove of things. My guess is that it will take a book on Matlab and a few nights to get the fundamentals down.
