Hi,
I am using python3. I need to call python3 in MATLAB. I found this page http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/getting-started_buik_wp-3.html
It said "MATLAB supports versions 2.7, 3.3, and 3.4"
Is it possible for me to call python3 in MATLAB?
If yes, How to call python3 in MATLAB?
Thanks

I also have this question. I am just trying out the features for calling Python from MATLAB. The help pages say to call 'pyenv' in MATLAB, which in my case reports the version of 'python' which is Python 2.7.
Our servers have both Python v.2 (accessed via the command name 'python') and Python v.3.x (accessed as 'python3')
Is there a way in MATLAB to specify which major version of Python you want to invoke? For instance, by analogy with the 'pip3' command, is there / could there be a MATLAB function 'py3' invoked as 'py3.modulename' ?

What is the output when you run "python3 --version"? There should be both major number and minor number like Python 3.2.*, Python 3.3.* etc.
