system(...) yields different results than Terminal application on mac

11 views (last 30 days)
Currently I try to trigger latex compiling out of matlab. On windows it works fine with
system('xelatex arbitrarytex.tex')
however on mac it says
/bin/bash: xelatex: command not found
However it works if I write the exact same command in terminal application by hand. Probably environmental variables are not loaded, however there is neither ~/.bashrc nor ~/.bash_profile existing on my system. I figure there must be another file to load before accessing system default variables? Someone familiar with that?

You need to set your MATLAB PATH environment variable.
See Walter's answer and my comment to this similar question that I asked a while ago.
