MATLAB Compiler™ lets you share MATLAB® programs as standalone applications.
All applications created with MATLAB Compiler use the MATLAB Runtime, which enables royalty-free deployment to users who do not need MATLAB. You can package the runtime with the application, or have your users download it during installation.
How to build MATLAB stand-alone applications from scripts.
On Perlmutter with NoMachine (over NX):
module load matlab matlab-mcr
Copy the example below to a file in your home directory and launch MATLAB
This example shows a matrix factorization, using a function that performs a Cholesky decomposition. It will read data from and write results to CSV files. This script produces an upper triangular matrix R from the diagonal and upper triangle of matrix A, satisfying the equation
A_path is the path to CSV-formatted data for A and
outpath is where R will be written to as a CSV file.
function R = decomposition(A_path, outpath)
% A_path: Path to CSV data
% A: Matrix positive definite
% R: upper triangular matrix R from the diagonal and upper
% triangle of matrix A, satisfying the equation R'*R=A
A = csvread(A_path);
R = chol(A);
From the command line, one can also use the MATLAB compiler as follows:
mkdir build; cd build
mcc -m ../decomposition.m
You may see seg faults when trying to run
mcc at the shell command line when graphics are not enabled. To avoid this, you can run
mcc within a MATLAB session started with
matlab -nodisplay, run it in NoMachine, or log in with X forwarding enabled.
After the build process is completed, execute the program with the following syntax and the needed input arguments. For this particular example the variables are A: Matrix positive definite and outpath: path to where results will be written to:
$HOME/matlab_examples/build/decomposition/for_testing if GUI was used
$HOME/matlab_examples/build if mcc was used:
./run_decomposition.sh $MCR_ROOT $HOME/matlab_examples/data.csv ./out.csv
MCR_ROOT variable is set by
module load matlab/MCR_R2021b. It is recommended to copy these libraries to Lustre if your application is very I/O intensive.
The complete documentation for mcc can be found in the MATLAB documentation.
