Run Engine Application on Linux

This example shows how to run the C example engdemo.c from the Linux® system prompt. Make note of the value of matlabroot, the folder where MATLAB® is installed.

Set the run-time library path. This command replaces the value, if any, in LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH matlabroot/bin/glnxa64:matlabroot/sys/os/glnxa64

Set the path. Make sure that you include the : path terminator character.

setenv PATH matlabroot/bin:$PATH  

Run the example. The engdemo application must be on your system path.


MATLAB starts and displays a figure.

To close the figure, press Return.

Create variable X, for example:

X = 'hello'

MATLAB displays the results and closes.
