# Is it possible to use Matlab “system” function to call ROS commands?

Is it possible to use the Matlab's system function to call ROS commands?

For example, using system('rostopic pub /cmd_vel geometry.msgs.Twist {....} or system('rospack find ipc_bridge).

I'm trying to send some commands to ROS without using something like IPC-Bridge.

PS: I know, however, that I need to use IPC-Bridge to subscribe to topics.
