system command pressing return

6 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to run a system command from matlab, but I need to hit enter twice before any output comes out.
If I run it in the command window I can hit enter twice and then I get the output, but I also need to run this from a script as well where I don't want to be press enter. I just want it to continue.
Is there a way to call the system command and specify that I need to hit enter?

This trick has worked many times. Try it.
Create a text file called KeyInput.txt, in which you hit return twice and save it. Basically it is a blank text file. Name it differetnly if you want.
Then run system('MyCommand.exe < KeyInput.txt')
