For those who are interested, there are two ways of doing this:

The most portable is to call the 'Matlab engine', which is a C and Fortran
library for automating Matlab. This can be done using f2py or ctypes (wrap
libeng.dll and libmx.dll).


The other option (Windows only) is to use Matlab as an outproc COM server.
This will require pywin32.
