MATLAB: Is it possible to create a stand alone executable without the Matlab Compiler toolbox

executableMATLAB Compiler

I don't have the Matlab Compiler toolbox, but would like to generate a standalone executable. Is it possible to do so without the toolbox?

  • Yes. The MATLAB Coder product does not require MATLAB Compiler product.
    MATLAB Coder is much more restricted as to what it can generate. In particular, it cannot generate much graphics, so if you wanted a graphic interface you would have to find a way to add one on.
    Note: the MATLAB Coder product is much more expensive than MATLAB Compiler.
