Start Python® at the operating system prompt.
into your Python session.
Start a new MATLAB® process by calling
start_matlab function returns a Python object,
eng, which enables you to pass data
and call functions executed by MATLAB.
import matlab.engine eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab()
Start each engine separately. Each engine starts and communicates with its own MATLAB process.
eng1 = matlab.engine.start_matlab() eng2 = matlab.engine.start_matlab()
Call either the
exit or the
If you exit Python with an engine still running, then Python automatically stops the engine and its MATLAB process.
Start the engine and pass the options as an input argument string
matlab.engine.start_matlab. For example, start MATLAB with
eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab("-desktop")
You can define multiple startup options with a single string.
For example, start the desktop and set the numeric display format
eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab("-desktop -r 'format short'")
You also can start the desktop after you start the engine.
import matlab.engine eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab() eng.desktop(nargout=0)
Start the engine asynchronously. While MATLAB starts, you can enter commands at the Python command line.
import matlab.engine future = matlab.engine.start_matlab(background=True)
Create the MATLAB instance so you can perform computations in MATLAB.
eng = future.result()
