Funny how your question is so similar to mine. I actually
got it to work in the batch mode on a PC using the previous

matlab -nodesktop -nosplash -r FunctionName

However, the function I am starting needs 6 arguments, with
the first 3 being floating point numbers and the last 3
being strings. I've tried every weird permutation I can
think of but the values I put in just never get through:

matlab -nodesktop -nosplash -r FunctionName arg1 arg2 arg3

What's the secret (and is it documented anywhere)? version
