Hi,
setenv and getenv used to work nicely for me, and enabled me to call other scripts using the unix command. recently it stopped working. Not sure when, but i am now using MATLAB 2017a, and mac OS Sierra 10.12.6.
For instance, from matlab command line:
unix('which perl') /bin/bash: which: command not found
ans =
127
While, from terminal:
which perl
/usr/bin/perl
Although i have defined the following on my startup.m: setenv('PATH','usr/bin:/usr/local/bin');
Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks, Guy

setenv('PATH','/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin')
You were missing a '/' before 'usr/bin'
