AppleEvent Client ToolBox for Matlab 4.2.c (PPC only)
This Toolbox is an answer to the following question: "How can I send AppleEvents from MATLAB ?"
With this software, your MATLAB application can send AppleEvents to a FINDER (to launch an application) or to another MATLAB running somewhere on the network...
It is now possible to distribute heavy modular tasks among different Macs running Matlab, provided YOU write necessary Functions to exchange data.
MATLAB can tell the FINDER you want to LAUNCH the application you want (which can be an AppleScript!...). This application can be anywhere on the network provided the accurate disk is mounted on the Mac where the targeted FINDER runs.
The ToolBox is composed of 1 mex file (AppleEvent.mex) which handles the events, and 6 .m functions which provide user interface. DO NOT CALL AppleEvent.mex DIRECTLY: use the .m functions to Create, Send, Delete, Save, Load and Reset AppleEvents.
In this archive a ShutDown.mex file is also available to allow to ShutDown a Mac from MATLAB (usefull after a long batch).
The file MATL_AE_Tbx.sea.hqx has just been submitted to MATLAB FTP archive. It is also available on my annonymous FTP: ftp.icp.grenet.fr:/incoming/piquemal
