I am calling a matlab executable by providing input arguments from the python script. Will Matlab Executable return the output argument back to python after completing execution?
This is the illustration of how I am calling the function python script
os.system('run_matlabcode.sh /usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v83/ 1000 1100')
The Matlab code named matlabcode.m which is converted to a standalone executable should have an output count
function count=cellcount(frame1,frame2)
How can I return the value of 'count' back to the python program? Please help!

Instead of a standalone executable, you should use a python library compiled with MATLAB Compiler SDK. It allows you to call MATLAB functions from Python, and transfer inputs and outputs more easily. See Compiler SDK documentation. If you cannot use compiled Python libraries, then I think the only option is to have the MATLAB executable write the output to a file, and have the Python application read the results from the file.
