MATLAB from command line - Cannot find script in the current direcoty

6 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I just installed Matlab on a Linux machine that doesn't have the X server. Therefore I launch matlab using the -nojvm -nodisplay -nosplash options to run it from command line.
I can correctly launch commands from the "command windows", but it seams to not find any script. Here is an example:
>> dir
. .. test.m
>> ls
>> which test.m
>> pwd
>> test.m
Undefined variable "test" or function "test.m".
The script "test.m" is there. Both dis, ls and which can see it. However Matlab returns the "Undefined function" error when i try to run it.
I tried to change the permissions of test.m to allow execution from anyone (chmod 777 test.m), but this didn't work.

How stupid...
I'm so used to launch through the "Run" button that I missed this. Thank you very much.
