Platform and License
The primary functions for finding information about installed MathWorks® products are:
ver— MATLAB® license number, version numbers, and release names for all installed products
matlabRelease— MATLAB release name (since R2020b)
license— MATLAB license number, with options to list available or checked out licenses
If you do not have MATLAB installed and need information about your license, visit License Center.
