calling '!' or 'system' in matlab different than same functions from shell

Hi everyone,

When I am in the shell (tcsh) on my Mac (outside Matlab), I am able to
use the command line utility ncdump to read netcdf format files
(http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/):

ncdump -h testfile.nc

However, in Matlab, the same command preceded by the '!' (or using
'system') generates an error:

>> !ncdump -h test.nc

Referenced from: /opt/local/bin/ncdump
Reason: Incompatible library version: ncdump requires version 10.0.0
or later, but libnetcdf.7.dylib provides version 9.0.0
Trace/BPT trap
ncdump -h test.nc: Trace/breakpoint trap

I'm unable to figure out why the command preceded by '!' in Matlab
does not invoke the same libraries as the command in the shell.
Following a previous listserve thread, I've changed the matlab startup
path so it should search through the same directories as the shell,
but that doesn't help. I'm running Matlab R2012a (7.14.0.739) on Mac
OS 10.7.3.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Andrew

'''''''''''''The Running Update/Append Queries Using VBA code Ordeal''''''''''''''
Hello fellow programmers, I am trying to run an append/update query from code, a command button on a form initiates the queries. the format i am using is; _____________________________________________________ SELECT "criteria" FROM "criteria" WHERE "criteria" UPDATE/APPEND "field selections" RecordSource "qryExample" = above text strings" _______________________________________________________________________ When i am running a SELECT query in this manner it works fine with no problems, and accepts the values of specified linked form fields. This never works when doing an APPEND/UPDATE query. It can never find the values of linked form fields, Access always asks for the parameter value of the field(s) in question, or Access comes up with an error 3323 - No recordset. I am sure there are other people that have had this problem. What is the difference between Select queries and append/update queries? the append/update queries never seem to be able to find values in linked form fields. Can anyone shed any light on this or point to a knowledgebase Item, or even recommend a book focusing on this subject, I will go and buy it now. I have been for up 2 nights trying to acomplish this and now considering suicide, please help. Thanks In advance, Aaron. I know of two ways you can accomplish this. 1. You can create the SQL script for you append or update query and run the script with DoCmd.RunSQL. 2. You can create a...

replacement for '{' and '}' ?
I am still playing around with what kind of syntax I would like to mark up my documents. Are there equivalent long substitutes for { and } when they are not used to describe arguments to functions? Something like \begin{group} and \end{group}. In other words, if I could force myself to write, say, \begin{group} \it ... \end{group} instead of {\it ... }, then I believe I could identify from the markup context what is an argument that belongs to a just invoked macro and what is text. {Of course, in this context, \textit{...} would be better.} No more ambiguity whether a in \myfunction{a} is an argument or just text. Is there a way to make latex barf when it sees an ordinary '{' in text, rather than \begin{group}, but not barf when I want it (to denote macro arguments)?

'[OFF]' as in 'offensive'???
Hi, given that 'off-topicness' is indicated as '[OT]' and taking a look at those postings that started the threads indicated as '[OFF]' (which may both be seen as being somewhat offensive) may lead to the conclusion that '[OFF]' stands for offensiveness. I don't think that this is the intended meaning so what actually *does* '[OFF]' mean? I never came across that abbreviation before (although I have been around on the USENET for quite some time) but maybe it is worth knowing?

Like '' & '' & ''
Having this description column in a table "Cookies, peanut butter sandwich, regular" When using this WHERE clause: WHERE (((Food_Data.Description) Like "*Butter*" & "*Peanut*")); I dont get any results, however when using it this way round WHERE (((Food_Data.Description) Like "*Peanut*" & "*Butter*")); I get the row as expected. I assume that the query looks for them in order. Is there a way i can get around this and make the query search for both keywords no matter which order i ype them in.

The query looks for a string that matches the pattern "*Peanut**Butter*", so obviously it's not going to match "Butter Peanut".

No difference that I know of ... SAS has all sorts of things you can use as operators. LT,< LE,<= ne, ^=, ~=, <> in some contexts at least eq, = <<< these actually DO have a difference or two, particularly as relates to assignment I don't recall where the full list is, but http://support.sas.com/onlinedoc/913/getDoc/en/lrdict.hlp/a000202951.htm#a000290128has the list of them usable in WHERE statements (which, IIRC, is slightly greater than that of normal code, as it allows for SQL syntax in ways the rest of SAS does not). -Joe On Wed, Feb 11, 2009 at 4:52 PM, Duck-Hye Yang <dyang@chapinhall.org> wrote: > Hello, > What is the difference between '^=' and '~='? > > Thanks, > Duckhye > ...

(patch for Bash) 'vcat', 'vset', 'vfile'
These 3 builtin commands are designed to "dump" and "reload" shell variables to/from file, without going through another layer of interpretation or parsing. In addition to reading/writing simple string for ordinary shell variable, the commands can handle positional parameters and array variables (both index and values). vcat [-0A] [name] > file Writes a shell variable NAME to stdout (inverse of 'vset'). If NAME is missing, then positional parameters are printed. Each value of array elements and positional parameters is terminated by '\0', whereas ordinary shell variable is not \0-terminated unless option -0 is given. By default, only the array values are printed, but option -A will print the array index as well. vset [-0A] [name] < file Assigns a shell variable NAME from stdin (inverse of 'vcat'). If NAME is missing, then positional parameters are set. If input data contains '\0', then it is considered array, and NAME will be converted to array variable. By default, only array values are set, but option -A will set the array index as well. If there is only one string with trailing '\0', then option -0 will set it to regular shell variable. vfile -[rw] [-d dir] [-0A] name... Read (-r) or write (-w) shell variables from/to files of the same name. Internally, it uses 'vcat' and 'vset', so full array content is preserved. vcat [-0A] name > name vset [...

Scilab's 'optim' and 'splin'
I've got this really cool application that makes a smoothed line using splines, then fits it to a source line using a nonlinear weighting. I'm currently using SciLab with it's 'optim' and 'splin' function to do this, but now I need to write some embeddable C++ code. The 'splin' function is obvious -- it generates a spline from a number of inflection points. The 'optim' function as I am using it uses a quasi-Newton method, which is working just fine for me. Before I go and write this stuff up by hand, does anyone have any suggestions on where I can find example code to do this? I'm mostly concerned with the optimization -- I'd like to get my hands on something where some one else has already fallen into the pitfalls. TIA. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Posting from Google? See http://cfaj.freeshell.org/google/ "Applied Control Theory for Embedded Systems" came out in April. See details at http://www.wescottdesign.com/actfes/actfes.html Just a remark : there is a lsq_splin function which try to fit a splin to discrete points (with various weight if needed). May be it can help you at least to find a good starting point for your optimization ? hth Bruno Tim Wescott wrote: > I've got this really cool application that makes a smoothed line using > splines, then fits it to a source line using a nonlinear weighting.
