Hi All,

I have the problem in using 'mat' command in SAC. I am trying to fix the problem since a
week, but could able to succeed. Can any one help me ???
My problem is as follows:

When I try to connect to matlab from sac using mat, the following error is appearing

SAC> mat
ERROR 8002: Cannot link to MATLAB shared object:

According to SAC installation instructions (Readme file), we need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to
include matlab shared object libraries.

[From SAC Readme file:
If you have matlab 5.0 on solaris, set LD_LIBRA:RY_PATH to include
Malta shared object libraries:
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH ${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/usr/local/matlab/extern/lib/sol2]


But it does not say any thing specific to MAC OSX which I am using.

I have set LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable as follows:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /Applications/MATLAB_R2007b/extern/lib/maci/
as there are no other folders in lib folder.


I have even tried setting up this variable to different folders like
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /Applications/MATLAB_R2007b/bin/maci
where many .dylib files are located.

But none of them worked out, same error is appearing all the times. Please help me out.

    Ravi,

    The next version of SAC, out sometime this year, will include
    slightly better support for Matlab.

    For now try setting DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH to the same value as you set
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    This should only work for OS X. See the dyld manpage and try:

    setenv DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH /Applications/MATLAB_R2007b/bin/maci

    For other systems, the command you used should work fine.

    Cheers
