Hi All
I want to run a look evey hour and do some math inside the loop.
one solusion is to use tic/toc to get the math time and deduce it from the pause time, but I find it not efficient.
Any solusion to this?
Thanks.

Using tic / toc in a while loop is not very efficient.
Much better to use a timer object.

while true
tic
% some math here
elapsedTime=toc
pause(3600+elapsedTime);
clearvars elapsedTime;
end
% Please note on while loop to avoid infinite run

Use timer is much better. I think PAUSE will lock completely 99% of MATLAB.
