How to pass variables between bash scripts and Matlab
For example, in Matlab, I have a string
x = 'foo' so I want to use it in a bash script. Or I have x
=$'foo' in the bash script so I want to use
x in Matlab. Is there a way to do this?
I can’t tell you about matlab, but in Octave everything is simple.
For example, to pass a bash variable to octave, all you need to do is this:
Xmax=10; echo "x=[1:$Xmax]; sin(x)" | octave -q ans = Columns 1 through 8: 0.84147 0.90930 0.14112 -0.75680 -0.95892 -0.27942 0.65699 0.98936 Columns 9 and 10: 0.41212 -0.54402
And vice versa:
Xmax=$(echo "fprintf(1, '%g', max(sin([1:5])))" | octave -q); echo $Xmax 0.909297
