Groovy programming in MATLAB
9 views (last 30 days)
Groovy ( http://groovy.codehaus.org/ ) is a modern JVM-based programming language that can be used easily within MATLAB if you add groovy-all.jar to the MATLAB javaclasspath.
As a Python-like, dynamically-typed language, it’s likely to be attractive to the some MATLAB users. http://groovy.codehaus.org/Cookbook+Examples has examples of using Groovy with databases, XML, URLs and more.
Groovy “closures” can be assigned to MATLAB variables and work much as MATLAB anonymous functions. You can also explore Groovy on-the-fly by invoking a groovy console session in MATLAB (works on Windows and from R2012a on Mac/Linux):
A search for “groovy” on Answers and the Newsgroup gives no hits – hence this “question” to draw more attention to it.
