Create MATLAB readable avi from bmp frames

Use the following command ffmpeg -vframes 200 -f image2 -i airport1%03d.bmp -f avi -vcodec rawvideo -pix_fmt bgr24 -acodec pcm_s16le airport.avi This will convert all the files airport1000.bmp to airport1200.bmp to an avi file. Using mencoder will allow you to chose the framerate: mencoder “mf://*.bmp” -mf fps=12 -o out.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=msmpeg4v2:vbitrate=800

Compile MATLAB functions in C and link them with Intel MKL CBLAS

The MATLAB utility “mex” (enter “help mex” in command window in MATLAB) is a wrapper for your actual compiler, like gcc. It does not support intels icc. But this is no reason not to use the Intel MKL libraries! Write your code and compile it with: mex cpuMatrixCBLAS.c -I/opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/069/mkl/include/ -L/opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/069/mkl/lib/em64t /opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/069/mkl/lib/em64t/libmkl_solver_lp64_sequential.a -Wl,–start-group /opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/069/mkl/lib/em64t/libmkl_intel_lp64.a /opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/069/mkl/lib/em64t/libmkl_sequential.a /opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/069/mkl/lib/em64t/libmkl_core.a… Continue reading Compile MATLAB functions in C and link them with Intel MKL CBLAS

start MATLAB in command line mode from bash/linux console

Sometimes I want to start matlab without having the (lame) X interface. Instead of, I just use the command line. For this purpose, just run: matlab -nodisplay Or even easier, by adding a small script in /$MATLAB_HOME/bin maybe named “matlabnoX” with the content above. Make sure to chmod the file such that it is runnable!
