This plugin provides low-level tools needed to execute some functions on Icy from a Matlab application. The Matlab X server plugin, which turns Icy into an image/video/sequence viewer for Matlab, is a typical example of what can be done with Matlab communicator.
In addition to the usual Icy install procedure, you have to configure your Matlab application in a specific way in order to be able to use this plugin. In particular, the following commands must be executed each time you start Matlab:
This operation can be done automatically using a startup.m file (please consult the Matlab documentation for more details).
Please note that these instructions are also mentioned in the icy_init.m file located in the /path/to/Icy/plugins/ylemontag/matlabcommunicator directory.
Special note for the users of the Matlab X server plugin
For historical reasons, up to version 126.96.36.199, the Matlab X server plugin used to incorporate the low-level communication functions that are now provided by the current plugin. In that respect, there used to be a specific install procedure for the Matlab X server plugin too, but this former procedure is now deprecated.
However, as it depends now on the current plugin, users of the Matlab X server plugin must now follow the install procedure described above.
