How to call a matlab script from an C++ program (not visual C) on Linux Red Hat. How easy is it to do this? What are the steps? How do I code C++ to invoke the script? How do I compile the C++ to create an executable? Can someone answer this? Is this supported on Red Hat Linux 5.5? Thanks.

If you are running the C++ application on a machine that has MATLAB installed, see MATLAB Engine API for C, C++, and Fortran.
If you need to run this executable on a machine that does not have MATLAB installed, you can get the MATLAB Compiler to compile MATLAB code into a shared library and call it from your C++ code.

I am trying to use the startMATLAB() function in c++, but I am getting a segmentation fault. Could you refer to my question here to try to help me out? :
Thank you very much
