#### Description

This page will describe how to set up MatLab on a department machine.

#### MatLab in the department

The department has a MatLab license which covers all machines. There are two ways to access MatLab. First using remote execution on the shared copy of MatLab held in the file system. Note that this is only available from Linux machines and will run slower than normal due since the actual program is running on an external machine.

Running Remote MatLab:

Open a Terminal Window

Run the command "ssh -X trmaster" to open a remote xterm connection to trmaster

Run the command "uname -a" to find out the type of machine you are using

Start MatLab with the command /local/trmaster/opt/matlab/<MachineType>/bin/matlab where <MachineType> is the type of machine you are running*

* So for example; if "uname -a" gives "Linux <A Machine Name> <A Date and Time> <A Processor> i386 GNU/Linux" would correspond to "i386-unknown-linux"
