The sim command can be used to simulate Simulink models or MPC objects. How can I open the Help Browser from the command line for the sim in the MPC Toolbox? The "doc sim" command open the reference for Simulink sim, not MPC sim.
I could use the "doc mpc/sim" command in the past to get help from the command line for the MPC sim. It doesn't seem to work in R2018b.

There seems to exist a consistency issue.
  • In R2018a, "doc mpc/sim" brings up the correct doc page. The address is
web(fullfile(docroot, 'mpc/ref/sim.html'))
  • In R2018b, "doc mpc/sim" WON'T bring up the correct doc page. Using address can bring it up
web(fullfile(docroot, 'mpc/ref/sim.html'))
  • In R2019a, "doc mpc/sim" brings up the correct doc page. The address is slightly different
web(fullfile(docroot, 'mpc/ref/mpc.sim.html'))

I would add that "doc mpc/sim" also works in R2019b. So R2018b is the only version that doesn't work.
How did you find out the corresponding web commands?

Right click on the doc page, select "Get Page Address"
