Hello All,
I call another application(saber) from matlab for simulating.
it works well and the output of simulation are written seperately.
but sometimes the saber run into infinite numerical calculations,in such situations i need to kill saber.
i have used method of calling the .exe and pause(n) for 'n' seconds then if it is exceeding it then killing saber from matlab.
but the problem is it also waits for 'n' seconds for the simulation which finishes quite earlier than 'n' seconds.
so help me in implementing this ,where if the simulation is taking much time it will kill and if it is finished early then it should process further without waiting for 'n' seconds
