This document describes `MatPy`, a `Python` package for numerical
computation with `Matlab`-like interface, implemented as wrappers around
the packages Numerical, Gnuplot and SpecialFuncs.
It differs from the `NumPy` package in the user interface, which is more
oriented toward linear algebra and for interactive use.
It differs from `Matlab` in the availability and utilization of `Python`'s
excellent object-oriented features.
