Someone put it up as a requested language on RC a couple months ago, 
but, sadly, I don't recall seeing anyone come forward with examples. If 
you're looking to learn it, our "unimplemented in language X" pages 
might be a good starter set of problems for you. ;) (However, Project 
Euler is a more traditional approach.)

Heh...Who hasn't heard of Matlab? I never got to use it, though; Too 
expensive, and GRCC only ever had Maple installed everywhere.  I hadn't 
heard of S before, though.

I'm fortunate I never had an instructor like that.
