There is also python with matplotlib


if used in combination with ipython (enhanced interactive Python shell)
one has a very capable "matlab-replacement".

However, it requires a small investment in terms of learning python (which
is easy), and the ability to accept the enforced indentation policy (which
might be harder for some...).
