I'm experiencing some problems with ls command. after typing ls in MatlabR2013a, I get the contents, but this is preceded by: >> ls set: Syntax Error.
Though everything is displayed well, I find it quite annoying. Any ideas what may cause this?
OS: Mac OSX 10.7.5
terminal usage doesn't give this error. location ls: /bin/ls

Check your ~/.bashrc /etc/profile ~/.bash_profile ~/.bash_login and ~/.profile and also any file named by the shell environment variable ENV .
A common error in shell initialization scripts is to use something similar to
stty `tset -q`
(except there would be some option flags involved) to try to set the "terminal type". The "terminal type" is not defined except for interactive login shells. People tend to construct the above initialization files as if they are being executed in that context, but the assumption is not always true. Anything in the shell initialization that depends upon it being an interactive login shell, should be protected with a specific test that a terminal is really available. In the sh / ksh / bash family that can be done with
if -t 0
if -t 0 stty `tset -q` fi
