Dear Jeroen,

thank you for answering. Unfortunately your mail got folded between two Nigerian business proposals...

The problem with the Matlab Engine in version 1.24.2 is that the Core of 1.24.2 is broken.
To fix the problem: one should replace the file /src/main/ with this one.

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

I have diffed the file you have sent me against the from the MacOS binary distribution. The distributed version actually has some more code than the file you sent me,. The most notable difference, however, is the following set of lines in the from the 1.24.2 distribution:

  // readline() is broken on OS 10.4, have to disable this to run.
  #if defined __APPLE__
  // bool use_eai = false;
  bool use_eai = true;
  bool use_eai = true;

From this I'd guess that the Matlab interface has deliberately been disabled because of MacOS problems.

I would have to recompile SCIRun to find out more. Unfortunately this leads into a maze of twisty little software packages, all missing from my computer. Is there any documentation which configure options have been used for the MacOS binary distribution?
