I have a code runs a loop a million times. In each iteration, a new row of data is filled into a matrix. I want to find a way such that if I press the 'pasue' button (Matlab 2021), it saves the relevant variables so I can 'resume' the task by feeding that data back into a function.
Basically I am looking for a function I can put in the script that can detect when the pause button has been hit so it can save the data from RAM to a text file.

Hi Divij Gupta
In Matlab, whenever a pause button is pressed all the workspace variables are updated according the latest run of the program. You can save these updated workspace variables in a mat file or txt file using save by executing this save command from command window without disturbing the execution of current program in pause mode.
