I mean scripts and functions that I have written myself. Satisfied?

What do you mean by "matlab .m files"? Are these files written for
Matlab, or part of MathWorks products? If they are part of MathWorks
products, you might be interested in the portion of your Matlab or
toolbox license that includes a clause something like this:
[...] The Licensee may not incorporate or use "M-files", "P-code",
source code, or any other part of the Programs in or as part of
another computer program without the consent of MathWorks. [...]
IANAL, but it seems as though the license does not allow you to use
anything other than Matlab to run any M-files that are part of a
MathWorks product.
