I have been slowly learning C++ and ROOT for over a year now, in order to debug a program made with it.
Now I reached a point where I can really understand that this will never become easier. Therefore I'm looking for some advices in alternatives.
What I need is something that can do, plots, histogram, 2D and 3D, and that has good minimization routines, and specially, fast learning curve and easy to write and debug.
I also need it do be fast, as fore example I now need run to over 600k fits, this takes around 1h30. But I spend far more time writing it, so if I double the running time and cut in half the programming time, this will be worth the effort.
For the moment I know, Matlab/octave and C++.
