I got this error when running a file with the simult_ function in it:

Unrecognized function or variable ‘k_order_simul’.

Error in simult_ (line 60)
y_ = k_order_simul(iorder,M_.nstatic,M_.npred,M_.nboth,M_.nfwrd,exo_nbr, …

Error in simult (line 86)
y_ = simult_(M_,options_,y0,dr,exo_simul,order);

Error in stoch_simul (line 199)
[oo_.endo_simul, oo_.exo_simul] = simult(y0,oo_.dr,M_,options_);

Error in OILPAPERDYNARE_BaskayaSpec.driver (line 6282)
[info, oo_, options_, M_] = stoch_simul(M_, options_, oo_, var_list_);

Error in dynare (line 310)
evalin(‘base’,[fname ‘.driver’]);

This suggests an installation problem with the mex-files. Are you on a Mac?

Yes, I’m on a Mac.

Then most probably you did not choose the right combination of Matlab and Dynare for your processor (i.e. Intel vs. Silicon).

Thank you. I downloaded Matlab R2023b for Silicon, and used Dynare 6-beta2-arm64. Now the file runs.
