### How to use this tool?

This free online converter lets you convert code from Matlab to Kotlin in a click of a button. To use this converter, take the following steps -

- Type or paste your Matlab code in the input box.
- Click the convert button.
- The resulting Kotlin code from the conversion will be displayed in the output box.

### Examples

The following are examples of code conversion from Matlab to Kotlin using this converter. Note that you may not always get the same code since it is generated by an AI language model which is not 100% deterministic and gets updated from time to time.

Example 1 - Is String Palindrome

Program that checks if a string is a palindrome or not.

Matlab

Kotlin

Example 2 - Even or Odd

A well commented function to check if a number if odd or even.

Matlab

Kotlin

### Key differences between Matlab and Kotlin

Characteristic | Matlab | Kotlin |
---|---|---|

Syntax | Matlab uses a syntax that is similar to traditional programming languages, but with a focus on mathematical operations and matrix manipulation. | Kotlin uses a modern, concise syntax that is similar to Java, but with additional features such as null safety and extension functions. |

Paradigm | Matlab is primarily a procedural language, but also supports object-oriented programming. | Kotlin is a modern, multi-paradigm language that supports both object-oriented and functional programming. |

Typing | Matlab is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime. | Kotlin is statically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at compile time. |

Performance | Matlab is optimized for numerical computations and has good performance for these types of operations. | Kotlin is a general-purpose language and does not have the same level of optimization for numerical computations as Matlab. |

Libraries and frameworks | Matlab has a large number of built-in libraries and toolboxes for numerical computation, data analysis, and visualization. | Kotlin has a growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, particularly for Android development, but may not have as many options for scientific computing as Matlab. |

Community and support | Matlab has a large and active community, with many resources available for learning and troubleshooting. | Kotlin has a growing community, particularly in the Android development space, but may not have as many resources available for scientific computing as Matlab. |

Learning curve | Matlab has a relatively low learning curve for those with a background in mathematics or engineering, but may be more challenging for those without this background. | Kotlin has a moderate learning curve for those with a background in Java or other object-oriented languages, but may be more challenging for those without this background. |
