Toolbox directory in Mac OS X?

Toolbox directory in Mac OS X?

Toolbox directory in Mac OS X?

Does anyone know where/how to access the Matlab Toolbox directory in Mac OS X? On a Windows machine (Win XP), its fairly straightforward: C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2007a\toolbox.

On OS X, I can't seem to find any such directory, even though I have a half-dozen toolboxes installed. I can't even find the files that should make up the toolbox functions. Any thoughts?

Are they even accessible? Binary or other format? Also, on my Mac I have R2009 or R2010 installed (can't say for sure which one offhand); perhaps there was a n installation procedure change along the way...?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions!

RE: Toolbox directory in Mac OS X?

Mine is in:

Mac OS X 10.6.7
Matalab 2008a

Huh...well that sounds easy enough - not sure how I missed it!  I'll give that a try when I get home!

Thanks!  :)

RE: Toolbox directory in Mac OS X?

np. Lets hope yours is the same as mine :)


RE: Toolbox directory in Mac OS X?

Figures it out...

On the surface (with OS X 10.6.7 and R2010aSV-student version), all I have under Applications is the Matlab Application itself. However, if I "Show Package Contents"...then I get the subcontent you must be seeing, which includes the toolbox folder. Tricky :P

Side note - I don't think the "student version" has anything to do with how the files are stored/viewed  -just wanted to clarify what version I have installed.

Thanks again. Cheers!
