Dear Harald,

The problem with the Matlab Engine in version 1.24.2 is that the Core of 1.24.2 is broken. This release has a couple of hooks that were accidently removed from, which are causing problems in the Matlab Engine. Which causes the Matlab Engine never to be launched, as some classes get never instantiated.

To fix the problem: one should replace the file /src/main/ with this one.

Description: Binary data

This is the correct file, that somehow never made it into version 1.24.2.

best regards,

Jeroen Stinstra

   Can you answer this question?


is the Matlab package in SCIRun 1.24.2 working? More specifically, is
anybody out there using it on MacOS 10.4.4? I'm unable to get the Matlab
engine running and after wading through a million lines of output from
ktrace/kdump I think there is something fundamentally wrong with it.

- When I try to start the Matlab engine, I immediately get a bunch of
error messages in the block's log that are either self- contradictory or
outright wrong.
- ktrace shows that $HOME/SCIRun/services/matlabengine.rc ist stat ()ed
sucessfully, but no attempt is ever made to read it.
- a directory is successfully created in /tmp.
- after that, the SCIRun process writes out the error messages.
- no attempt is ever made to call matlab.

Any help would be appreciated
