MATLAB Publish freezes/hangs when writing multiple sections

9 views (last 30 days)
I am adding some Notes in a MATLAB file and want to publish it as an HTML or PDF like this -
with this code section
....
load coor_list.dat
% --- Beinhaltet die Informationen über die Phänomenologie der EHS --------
%%
% <html>
% <span style="color:red;font-weight:bold">This line...!</span>
% </html>
laser = 'EHS_Lame_Parameter_1.dat'; %-> Lame curves appproximation...
....
OR this publish like this -
with this code section
....
load coor_list.dat
% --- Beinhaltet die Informationen über die Phänomenologie der EHS --------
%%
% *This line...!*
laser = 'EHS_Lame_Parameter_1.dat'; %-> Lame curves appproximation...
....
Now the problem arises when I am doing this with multiple section. MATLAB hangs while publishing when there are around 80 sections.
Is this beacuse of the number of sections or there could be some other issue? How can I check if there is some other issue?
Could there be a problem because of existing comment lines preceeding/succeeding the sections?

Could you please provide the code in which you are facing this issue?

Hi @Sachin,
The .m file is contains code that I cannot share publically here.
I am inserting the comment sections before ^ after every line I want to put a comment on, in tis fashion-
%%
% <html>
% <span style="color:red;font-weight:bold">This line...!</span>
% </html>
laser = 'EHS_Lame_Parameter_1.dat'; %-> Lame curves appproximation...
%%
Or for better understanding-
%%
% <html>
% <span style="color:red;font-weight:bold">This line...!</span>
% </html>
Some line of code
%%
And this gives an expected output as well (see images in the original post) but only when I do this once or twice in the entire code.
When I insert comment sections in this fashion for 80 lines, then it hangs while publishing it.
I am not writing comment sections in any different way. Consider the above example for one line and replicate it for another 80 lines in a code. This is what I am doing.

Hi everyone,
I had contacted Matlab Technical Support team on this matter a nd have shared the files with them.
They investigated and found the issue does not occur when the code is not published and have suggested the workaround as follows-
publish('MatFile.m', 'evalCode',false)

Hi Atin,
While trying to publish sections to pdf or html format, multiple sections of data being loaded occupies systems resources causing system crash and glitches. Publishing the file section-wise may help avoid the crash.
For more information on various output preferences, you can refer to the following documentation:

How would you publish a file section-wise? I am having publish hang as well, for a script with a for loop. I have never had this problem before and we have very many long simulations in our code base.
