Executing Matlab scripts on different Operating Systems

Just a quick post about making matlab scripts run on different OS.

Writing a matlab code that works on both Windows and Linux is a little challenging, especially when accessing the disk both OS use a slightly different syntax for filesystem.

One solution to this is using computer string to check the OS. Once checked you can use if condition statements to execute relevant code on each system.

The script for this is pretty straight forward and is listed below:

%compile everything
if strcmpi(computer,'PCWIN') |strcmpi(computer,'PCWIN64')
   compile_windows
else
   compile_linux
end
