It should work with recent python >=2.3 and matlab(tm) >=6.0 versions and
under practically any supported by both matlab and python (I'm using linux
myself, but thanks to user feeback windows and OS X should also work fine).

Here is a short demo snippet:

    >>> from mlabwrap import mlab
    >>> import Numeric
    >>> mlab.lookfor('singular value')
    GSVD   Generalized Singular Value Decompostion.
    SVD    Singular value decomposition.
    >>> help(mlab.svd)
    mlab_command(*args, **kwargs)
     SVD    Singular value decomposition.
        [U,S,V] = SVD(X) produces a diagonal matrix S, of the same
        dimension as X and with nonnegative diagonal elements in
    >>> mlab.svd(array([[1,2], [1,3]]))
    array([[ 3.86432845],
          [ 0.25877718]])
