For calling compiled standalone applications (execution files created by MATLAB Compiler), just like calling external programs, "!" or "system" commands are used.
For example, if I have magicsquare.exe compiled from magicsquare.m in this example, I can call this exe from MATLAB.
status = system('magicsquare.exe 5'); if status == 0 % Do something when command returns success else % Do something when command returns error end
might be enough.
