ok it seems in 2015b there are 'shared engines' which can be shared using matlab.engine.shareEngine
now I would like to avoid having to open matlab directly so I want to run that matlab command ( matlab.engine.shareEngine) from an engine i start in python. Thus I start an engine normally (from python): eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab() and then try to share it using
but this causes an error. For some reason
runs but does not seem to create a shared engine. Is there a way to do this?
