It's a matter of making a trade-off between ease of use and runtime
efficiency. Python and R should be easy to pick up if you have
programming experience. And these two languages are not as difficult
as C for those who are starting to learn programming. Of course if
you're still concerned about speed, and you have a need for speed but
still don't want to do C programming, try using Cython [1] to
interface the C library of igraph with Python.
