Using unicode2native with a single argument, it defaults to "the MATLAB default character encoding scheme". How do I find out what my default is?

Another solution:
feature('DefaultCharacterSet')

Use java class:
import java.nio.charset.Charset
encoding = Charset.defaultCharset()

"MATLAB, unless you specify a particular encoding will use the computer's (user's) default encoding."
