what is a directory in the operating system path for matlab?

In Window OS,

An example of a directory in the operating system path is the 'matlab/bin/win32' directory.

What is it for Linux OS?

and what is a directory in linux which is corresponding to c:/tmp?

Install matlab first and you will find out.

and what is a directory in linux which is corresponding to c:/tmp?
There is no "C" no "D" drives in Gnu/Linux. The temporary directory is simply: "/tmp" at the root directory. Although few "tmp" directories are also created by special applications, like /var/tmp and recently kde tries to use something "HOME/.local/share/apps/kde/tmp" well not worth knowing though, kde alone uses that. Probably matlab will also create one for its own use.

Hope that helps.

Good luck
