How do I access Cygwin commands from Matlab without having to include the path? I am using the evaluation version of R2016b on Windows 10. I just installed Cygwin, and added all Cygwin paths to my matlab directory as,
path(path, genpath('C:\cygwin64\'));
However I can't get the ls command to run with the ! escape ,
!ls
'ls' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
It works if the full path is specified,
!C:\cygwin64\bin\ls
But I don't want to have to type the path. How can I make Matlab run Cygwin commands without having to type the path?
