The Matlab at UPitt runs on CIS machines under both unix and windows. This gives you a number of different ways to use it.

1. **You can go to the CIS lab** across the street from Benedum Hall. It is in
the building labeled "Calculus Lab". The windows machines there all have
access to MatLab.

2. **Log in remotely to unixs.cis.pitt.edu **and call Matlab from there. You will
need a CIS account to do this. All pitt students should have received
such an account automatically.

The procedure for doing so

from a departmental unixbox is:i) Type "xhost +" at the command line

ii) Enter "ssh -l {username} unixs.cis.pitt.edu" replacing {username} with the appropriate handle

iii) Once logged into unixs, type "setup matlab"

iv) Type "matlab". MatLab should appear on the screen

The procedure for doing so

from a departmental windows boxis a bit different. If you are at a windows machine with a working X PC interface, then:i) Run the X interface

ii) Telnet to unixs.cis.pitt.edu

iii) Once logged in, type: "setenv DISPLAY={machine name}:0.0" replacing {machine name} as appropriate

iv) run "xterm &"

v) Type "setup matlab" in the xterm window

vi) Type "matlab" in the xterm window

MatLab and the MatLab editor should appear on the screen. If you are at a windows machine without a working X PC interace, then you will still be able to use Matlab, but you will have to use pico, emacs, windows notepad, or some other editor in place of the MatLab editor. Procedure:

i) Telnet to unixs.cis.pitt.edu

ii) Type "setup matlab"

iii) Type "matlab".

Matlab will run and appear in the telnet session window
