    hey pf!

    i had a question. my university uses MATLAB for computing on a PC. however, i am using a Macbook. do you think the two can sync with each other? i am waiting on purchasing MATLAB until i know for sure both an communicate with each other.

    thanks all!

    I think programs written on one machine will work on the other if the MATlAB software is at the same level barring any bugs in implementation.

    What do you mean by syncing? Is one machine sending data to another machine?

    Usually its done via some tcpip protocol which is inherently supported by MacOSX or Windows or Linux so you shouldn't into problems across machines.

    seems to show that for most Matlab calculations that don't depend on subtle round off errors or using operating specific details, in other words almost all sensible well written Matlab calculations, there is no problem moving between Windows and Mac
