How to open a script in a running MATLAB instance with Windows Command Line?

35 views (last 30 days)
Double-click a script file in Windows File Explorer will open the script in a running MATLAB instance if it exists. Only when no instances are running will a new instance start. However in Windows commandline:
matlab SomeScript.m
This command will always start a new MATLAB instance, regardless of whether any instances are running. Is there a way to fully mimic the double-click behavior in Windows Commandline?
After all, how does MATLAB tell whether I'm calling it by double-click on a script or in cmd?

Here are all the options available while launching matlab from cmd. However there doesn't seem to be any option to open without starting new instance.

Then how is double-click processed? How can MATLAB treat a double-click differently?
