Built-in module "matlab" missing

Create issue
Issue #93 new
Former user created an issue

The end-user setup packages of versions 3.2.0 and 3.2.1 seem to come without the built-in module "matlab". Until version 3.1.0 it was still present. I would appreciate if the matlab module could be added again.

    License check for the integration of the matlab module into upcoming setups:

    • itom only requires the Matlab engine.h in order to be compiled with the Python itom ↔︎ matlab bridge
    • itom does not need access to any Matlab libraries (libeng etc.) during compile time, therefore itom will never be linked against Matlab code
    • Every user, who wants to access Matlab need to have the Matlab libraries installed on its own computer, they will never be shipped together with itom

    Resumé: I think that it should be possible to always compile itom for a Windows setup with the Matlab module, since every user of it requires a valid Matlab installation on its own PC once he starts using methods from this module. Therefore, any user, who wants to use this bridge, needs a Matlab license. Other users are not affected by this.

    This however has to be discussed!
