How do I run MATLAB from the mac terminal?

517 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to run MATLAB from the mac OS X terminal. I'm using macOS Mojave version 10.14.2, and MATLAB R2018b. What I'm doing is:
  • I open the terminal
  • Go to /Applications
  • pe MATLAB_R2018
However, I get the following:
-bash: MATLAB_R2018b: command not found
Can someone help me with this?

In terminal on mac, type this:
/Applications/Polyspace/R2019b/bin/matlab; exit;
Please adjust this to your own path. Works!
