MATLAB.JL : LoadError: UndefRefError:

Hello everybody,

I cannot use MATLAB.jl due to the error : >

ERROR: LoadError: UndefRefError: access to undefined reference

Would you tell me ow to fix this problem in Win10?

Best regards,

Can you include the full error message (including the stacktrace). While it might not make sense to you, it will most likely be very helpful in the process of locating the error.


Hey, Now I send you all the infos.

And what is the content of your file test.jl?
And which Matlab version do you use?

test.jl & Matlab 2019a

struct S

    a = Int32[1 2 3; 4 5 6], 
    b = [1.2, 3.4, 5.6, 7.8], 
    c = [[0.0, 1.0], [1.0, 2.0], [1.0, 2.0, 3.0]], 
    d = Dict("name"=>"MATLAB", "score"=>100.0), 
    s = "abcde",
    ss = [S(1.0, true, [1., 2.]), S(2.0, false, [3., 4.])] )

As a work around, you can use the MAT.jl package to read/write Matlab files (doesn’t require a Matlab installation).

julia> struct S

julia> using MAT

julia> matwrite("test.mat", Dict(
           "a" => Int32[1 2 3; 4 5 6],
           "b" => [1.2, 3.4, 5.6, 7.8],
           "c" => [[0.0, 1.0], [1.0, 2.0], [1.0, 2.0, 3.0]],
           "d" => Dict("name"=>"MATLAB", "score"=>100.0),
           "s" => "abcde",
           "ss" => [S(1.0, true, [1., 2.]), S(2.0, false, [3., 4.])] ))

I can read the resulting file in Matlab 2019a.

I am not sure, is it the reason that I am using JuliaPro 1.2.0??

I’ve no idea, I don’t just JuliaPro - personally I use the regular Julia binaries.

Note that the MAT.jl and MATLAB.jl are quite distinct and achieve different things - the latter is for communication with a running Matlab instance whereas the former is purely for reading/writing Matlab files.

thank you!

Can you post to the main MATLAB.jl repo?

Also have you ran pkg>build MATLAB

please check the error infos (build MATLAB is used.)

Is this only from JuliaPro?

I think I now have two reports of MATLAB.jl not working with JuliaPro, but it works fine with regular Julia.

May I ask if you could also test with regular Julia ? This would help isolate the issue.
