Hi, I tried to run a python script in matlab. I used the function system.So fa so good.
The pyhton script uses two input variables. In matlab I can enter one and then it runs without problems but when I try to enter two separate variables I always get an error.
systemCommand = ['python ',num2str(a),num2str(omtrek)]
[status, result] = system(systemCommand);
This is the error:
status =
result =
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 10, in <module>
TypeError: squared() takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)
Can someone help me?

This is interesting I am new to python, and I am trying to to do the dame thing Does the solution in fact work? I am keen to try it. I literally do not know python at all, neither am I am a programmer but I find it all fascinating and I move forward by trail and error. Some how I make progress. I will try this, but what infrastructure do you have? I have Matlab, 2017a and Python 3.6 Do i need anything else? I am reading that the former does not support the latter. Any thoughts?

when modifying your script to:
import sys
def squared(a,omtrek):
b = (omtrek/2)-a
return b
if __name__ == '__main__':
x = float(sys.argv[1])
y = float(sys.argv[2])
and calling it from MATLAB:
>>!C:\Python32\python.exe 1 2
it works fine for me. Or in your way:
>> a = 1
>> omtrek = 2
>>systemCommand = ['C:\Python32\python.exe ',num2str(a),' ',num2str(omtrek)]
>> system(systemCommand)
ans =

Hello, The above code works for me too. The program is running but I am not able to get back the value of b in Matlab. I want to perform further calculations with the value of b.
import sys
def add(a,c):
return b
if _name_ == 'main':
Why am I not getting the value of b back in matlab ?

Why not using Python Interface?
The MATLAB statement can be as simple as following:
>> b=py.sqd.squared(10,30)

This is easy to apply and works perfectly.

Could you try the above with a space between the two arguments?
systemCommand = ['python ',num2str(a),' ',num2str(omtrek)]

This is the python script:
import sys
def squared(a,omtrek):
b = (omtrek/2)-a
return b
if __name__ == '__main__':
x = float(sys.argv[1])
It's very easy code, but this is just a test for a more complex program I would like to run.
In python it works. In Matlab it doesn't. It's true that the code needs two inputs. But my question is how can I give two inputs using matlab?

You are right Friedrich, this works! Thanks!
But by doing this I have another problem. The python code calculates the value of a parameter "b". I need this parameter in matlab for further processing. The correct value appears on my screen but I can't handle it. For example like this:

Can any one help me how to integrate this python code to matlab, i want to run this python program in matlab...

It works for me as well, but it is very slow. It takes 0.2 sec to call a sum function from Python
Any ideas on how to speed it up? Where is the bottle neck?

Hello everyone! I have some images read in matlab and I want to process them in python and them return them to matlab for further processing.
Everything with the systemCommand works, however, even though I can import variables from matlab to python, because they are already in the workspace, I cannot return variables (e.g. images) back to matlab, when running the python script. Till now, in order to make it work, I save the python-processed images and then read them again from matlab.
I would like to ask if there is a more efficient way. In other words, in the example of Tom Leblicq, I would like to return the parameter b in matlab for further processing.
Thank you in advance!

The following command will return b in the workspace of MATLAB
