I would like to know if there is a matlab command to know where the '>>' will be at the end of a function execution.
For example if I do
fprintf('AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA')
I will get on the next command line
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA>>
The '>> ' are in the different position than the default position when I open Matlab. Is there a way to get where that position is?
Thanks

Thanks for your answer, I'll see how I can add a flag inside my code.

Just use
fprintf('AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA\n')
instead and it will put the new line at the end so that the >> will be on the next line where you expect it to be.

The original posted has said in a comment above:
"I don't want to use the '\n' because I don't want to pollute my screen with the same message n times (so n lines). n can vary between 1 and 0.5million."
