How do features from 'license' correspond to names from 'ver'

68 views (last 30 days)
This is the best information I had available as of May 2019.
Many of the codes used by ver() are missing as I do not have all products available for installation. Historical information is not always present.
The first column is the formal name of the product such as it shows up in ver(). It is not uncommon for Mathworks to rebrand a product.
The second column is the name of the product as it appears in license files. It would be those names that you would use with the license() command, such as |license('test', 'Audio_System_Toolbox') . It is rare for Mathworks to change a license code -- only when the license model itself changes such as Polyspace as of R2019a. When toolboxes get merged, one of the license codes is retained. The license code is the best way to follow products through historical releases.
The third column is the name of the product used by ver(). For example, ver('audio'). It is often the same as the name of the major sub-directory that the product is installed into. The ver code typically stays the same as products are rebranded, even if the installation directory moves. The installation directory mostly stays the same as products get rebranded, but tends to move as products get merge, and sometimes eventually changes after a rebrand. Historically, the code used by ver has typically matched the URL used in the documentation of the product, such as the Global Optimization Toolbox documentation being underneath /help/gads where gads is the ver code (the original product name was Genetic Algorithm and Direct Search Toolbox, GADS)
