C++ vs MATLAB: What are the differences?

C++: Has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing the facilities for low level memory manipulation. C++ compiles directly to a machine's native code, allowing it to be one of the fastest languages in the world, if optimized; MATLAB: A high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.

C++ and MATLAB can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Performance" is the primary reason why developers consider C++ over the competitors, whereas "Simulink" was stated as the key factor in picking MATLAB.

Lyft, OkCupid, and Twitch are some of the popular companies that use C++, whereas MATLAB is used by Empatica, Wham City Lights, and Walter. C++ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 199 company stacks & 371 developers stacks; compared to MATLAB, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 23 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to C++ and MATLAB?
C
PHP
Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
Java
Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!

C++ is used in Shiro (https://github.com/Marc3842h/shiro).

C++ is a high performance, low level programming language. Game servers need to run with fast performance to be able to reliably serve players across the globe.

The most latency sensitive parts are written in C++. Due to our interconnected services architecture, we use either Python or C++ for each service, with the performance critical parts being C++14.
