How to install toolbox for MATLAB
I am just wondering, if I need a toolbox which not available in my MATLAB, how do I do that? For example: if I need image processing toolbox, how do I get it?

first, you need to find the toolbox that you need. There are many people developing 3rd party toolboxes for Matlab, so there isn’t just one single place where you can find «the image processing toolbox». That said, a good place to start looking is the Matlab Central which is a Mathworks-run site for exchanging all kinds of Matlab-related material.
Once you find a toolbox you want, it will be in some compressed format, and its developers might have a «readme» file that details on how to install it. If it isn’t the case, a generic way to attempt installation is to place the toolbox in any directory on your drive, and then add it to Matlab path, e.g., going to File -> Set Path. -> Add Folder or Add with Subfolders (I’m writing for memory but this is definitely close).
Otherwise, you can extract all .m files in your working directory, if you don’t want to use downloaded toolbox in more than one project.
There are many toolboxes. Since you mentioned one that is commercially available from MathWorks, I assume you mean how do you get a trial/license
There is a link for trials, purchase, demos. This will get you in touch with your sales representative. If you know your sales representative, you could just call to get attention faster.
If you mean just a general toolbox that is from a source other than MathWorks, I would check with the producer, as it will vary widely from «Put it on your path.» to whatever their purchase and licensing procedure is.

10. Загрузка пакета расширения Matlab
Использование этой команды ведет к автоматическому запуску системы MATLAB (гарантируется работа с версиями MATLAB до 5.3.1 включительно) и установлению необходимой объектной связи между системами Maple 7 и MATLAB.
Как нетрудно заметить, данный пакет дает доступ всего к 18 функциям системы MATLAB (из многих сотен, имеющихся только в ядре последней системы). Таким образом, есть все основания полагать, что возможности MATLAB в интеграции с системой Maple 7 используются пока очень слабо и носят рудиментарный характер. Стоит ли ради этих функций иметь на компьютере огромную систему MATLAB, пользователи должны решать сами. Если ответ положительный, то, скорее всего, пользователь решает тот класс задач, для которых лучше подходит MATLAB, и надо задуматься уже над тем, нужен ли в этом случае Maple.
Matlab Package Manager (mpm)
A simple package manager for Matlab (inspired by pip). Downloads packages from Matlab Central’s File Exchange, GitHub repositories, or any other url pointing to a .zip file.
Download/clone this repo and add it to your Matlab path (using addpath ). Now try the following:
- mpm install [package-name] : install package by name
- mpm uninstall [package-name] : remove package, if installed
- mpm search [package-name] : search for package given name (checks Github and Matlab File Exchange)
- mpm freeze : lists all packages currently installed
- mpm init : adds all installed packages to path (run when Matlab starts up)
Install a single package
Install (searches FileExchange and Github):
When installing, mpm checks for a file in the package called install.m , which it will run after confirming (or add —force to auto-confirm). It also checks for a file called pathlist.m which tells it which paths (if any) to add.
Install a Github release (by tag, branch, or commit)
When uninstalling, mpm checks for a file in the package called uninstall.m , which it will run after confirming (or add —force to auto-confirm).
Search without installing:
Install from a url:
(Note that when specifying Github repo urls you must add the ‘.git’ to the url.)
Install local package:
The above will copy path/to/package into the default install directory. To skip the copy, add -e to the above command.
Overwrite existing packages:
Install/uninstall packages in a specific directory:
Note that the default installation directory is mpm-packages/ .
mpm has rudimentary support for managing collections of packages. To specify which collection to act on, use -c [collection_name] . Default collection is “default”.
Installing multiple packages from file
Specifying a requirements file lets you install or search for multiple packages at once. See ‘requirements-example.txt’ for an example. Make sure to provide an absolute path to the file!
To automatically confirm installation without being prompted, set —approve . Note that this is only available when installing packages from file.
What it does
By default, mpm installs all Matlab packages to the directory mpm-packages/ . (You can edit mpm_config.m to specify a custom default installation directory.)
If you restart Matlab, you’ll want to run mpm init to re-add all the folders in the installation directory to your Matlab path. Better yet, just run mpm init from your Matlab startup script.
Because there’s no standard directory structure for a Matlab package, automatically adding paths can get a bit messy. When mpm downloads a package, it adds a single folder within that package to your Matlab path. If there are no *.m files in the package’s base directory, it looks in folders called ‘bin’, ‘src’, ‘lib’, or ‘code’ instead. You can specify the name of an internal directory by passing in an -n or internaldir argument. To install a package without modifying any paths, set —nopaths . Or to add all subfolders in a package to the path, set —allpaths .
Mpm keeps track of the packages it’s downloaded in a file called mpm.mat , within each installation directory.
mpm should work cross-platform on versions Matlab 2014b and later. Also note that, starting with Matlab 2022, you may see a warning when using mpm, as Matlab includes a built-in command of the same name (used for installing Matlab products). You may need to rename the file mpm.m to something else, and then rename the function name on line 1 of this file to match, as well as the line containing “help mpm”.
