MATLAB

Software availability

To list the MATLAB versions available, type ‘matlab’ followed by the tab key (twice), e.g.:

matlab<tab><tab>

Graphics

Preface ‘matlab’ with a ‘g’ to improve graphics rendering and screen refresh performance. However, it may degrade overall performance and/or cause NX session errors, so use cautiously.

$ gmatlab-2010b

SPM

The following MATLAB/SPM command shortcuts are available for your convenience:

matlab-spm2
matlab-spm5
matlab-spm8

To determine the specific MATLAB version used by a shortcut, run the ‘ls’ command followed by the path to the shortcut from a terminal window, e.g.

ls -l `which matlab-spm2`

Toolboxes

Toolboxes are located in /usr/local/matlab-tools. To request a toolbox, please email support@cirl.berkeley.edu. Additional documentation is provided below:
