MATLABPATHEnvironment Variable on UNIX or Macintosh
On UNIX® and Macintosh platforms, you can define a
userpath by setting the
variable. By default, MATLAB® adds
the search path upon startup.
This example shows how to add two folders,
to the search path upon startup on a UNIX platform. The procedure
is similar for Macintosh platforms.
userpath is set to the default value
on a UNIX platform with a csh shell, where
your home folder. That is, the primary
In a terminal, set the
variable. Separate multiple folders using a colon (

The two folders,

runs. To set the secondary
all future MATLAB sessions, set the
variable in your startup script.
