Change working directory to where the mlx file is saved

8 views (last 30 days)
I have an mlx file which is run from different computers and I would like to automatically change the working directory to the directory in which the file is stored in (maybe with pwd??).
That is, I have identical copies of the mlx file which are run either from computer 1 or computer 2 (there are actually a lot more users involved, this is just an example):
In computer 1, the mlx files is stored in say this folder:
c:\user\comp1\docs
In computer 2, it is here:
c:\user\comp2\docs
Is it possible to run a command that identifies the folder that the mlx file is stored in, and then CD into that folder?

If that folder is in the matlab's path, you can
which your_mlx_file.mlx
