RE: use solution of solve (symbolic)

OK, many thanks. What I need is the second solution (indeed for interactive 
usage), to do similar things as easily achievable in Matlab.
The first solution is too tedious for my goals, my original solution (using 
copy-paste) is quicker .... But I agree, for programming purposes the first 
approach is more logical.
Any idea when the first solution wiil be available? I would like to apply this 
for my students next academic year (september?)

I agree with Doug.

In the *next* version of Symbolic (2.8.0, not out yet) you will also be able to 
use subs and/or eval to shortcut this a little bit:

syms a b
solution=solve([eq1 eq2],[a b])
a = solution.a
b = solution.b

The eval command will search your workspace for variables whose names match the 
symbols a and b.

Note: IMHO, this sort of thing might be nice for interactive command-line 
usage, but Doug's approach is better for code.
