How can I tell matlab it's running in the background?
13 views (last 30 days)
I'd like to be able to run a job either in the background or in the foreground. My program runs fine in the foreground but crashes in the background, presumably because it's not seeing some environment variable. The command that causes the crash is useful only for foreground applications (it relates to screen output) so I could easily avoid this problem if I could flag whether or not the program is running in the foreground. So my question is: does matlab know if it's being run as a foreground or background application, and if yes, what variable would indicate this?
Thanks for any advice
