Suppress Command Window Output using SYSTEM command

104 views (last 30 days)
Hi, on my code i'm doing a conversation between Matlab and a software called XFOIL. First the program creates a file (.dat) with all inputs that need to apply onXFOIL, than execute it with the follow command:
system('xfoil.exe < myfile.dat');
I want to suppress command window outputs. Can anybody help me?
Thank You!

The accepted answer unfortunately is OS specific. A MATLAB only solution would be:
[returncode, outputMessages] = system('xfoil.exe < myfile.dat');
or if you do not want to process the messages and need only the return code
[returncode, ~] = system('xfoil.exe < myfile.dat');
