redirect terminal output to file

152 views (last 30 days)
I have a commercial solver that I use in Matlab. It internally prints information to the Matlab terminal and I have no control over it. I want to redirect the output to a text file instead. What is the best way to do this? Pretty sure fprintf won't help me.

Why not? Also, your question is too vague. What is a commercial solver that you use IN Matlab? A function?

Good answer. But: Is there also any way to actually redirect - i.e. to stop output to the console at the same time?

One option is to use evalc to redirect output to a variable instead of the console.

As @B Treeby said in a comment above, you can hide all output from a function call by using evalc.
evalc('fprintf(''Hello, World!'')');
Note that the semicolon is important, here, because evalc returns the printed text, so without the semicolon you end up printing the output.
