Would you like to compare Mathcad & Python?

> Would you like to compare Mathcad & Python?
No! They are just two too different kind of beasts! Python is very versatile widely spread and used open programming language with a lot of very useful libraries available, while Mathcad is a dying closed proprietary program used by an ever-shrinking minority. And I say this even though I really love Mathcad (the real one, not Prime , of course).
But you may like to compare MatLab and Python if you feel so 😉
Why would you want to compare them? The best software is the one you know best! Granted Python is not a software as such. These are different things as pointed out by @Werner_E
While I could see some simple examples say solving the dynamic response of a SDoF ie a simple Differential equation solving as both tools have “built-in” function I am struggling to see where is the added value of such proposed book
The problem needs to be solved like this!
First, you need to solve it with Mathcad, and then translate this solution into languages Python, MATLAB, C etc.
