Configuring Matlab for SSRDE

The term "Matlab" can refer to two things: the programming language developed by MathWorks, or the windowed computing environment used to develop Matlab scripts and applications. SSRDE is able to run Matlab code, but it does not support the Matlab windowed environment, which means that Matlab workflows that otherwise would use the windowed environment need to be modified to take advantage of SSRDE.

In the above screenshot, we've written some code using the windowed environment, saved it to a script named analysis.m, and would execute that code by clicking the green Run button in the top center of the window.

To execute a matlab script of the same name on SSRDE, we need to call the matlab command on a script (which is just a text file with the matlab commands we want to use):
