Hi!
I want to run a script from the terminal inside my Linux operating system. I successfully do so using
matlab -nosplash -nodesktop -r "myfunction(arg1,agr2...,argN)"
but then the program quits because it runs into a line inside a second function that is called by myfunction which is
mkdir
The error says
Permission denied
Any thoughts?

The error message means, that you try to create a folder inside a path, in which you do not have write access. The solution is easy: Choose the correct parent folder for mkdir, e.g.
mkdir('~/yourfolder')
or any otehr location. With just
mkdir('yourfolder')
the current folder is used, and this might not be what you expect it to do. Most of all it can differ from the startup folders, which is active, when you start the Matlab GUI.
