matlab: Matlab bindings and interface

[ bsd3, foreign, library, math ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package aims to provide a comprehensive interface to the MathWorks MATLAB(R) libraries and native data structures, including complete matrix access, MAT-format files, linking and execution of runtime libraries and engine. Requires MATLAB for full functionality or an installed Matlab Component Runtime (MCR). This has been tested with MATLAB R2014a and might work with others.

You will probably need add some arguments that point Cabal to your MATLAB installation. For example, on a Linux system, it may look like this:
cabal install --extra-lib-dirs="/usr/local/MATLAB/R2014a/bin/glnxa64/" --extra-include-dirs="/usr/local/MATLAB/R2014a/extern/include/"
Versions [faq] 0.1,
Dependencies array (<0.6), base (==4.*), Cabal (<1.21), filepath (<1.4), unix (<2.8) [details]
