Hello, I have a function which is constantly updating my folder with data from our network, however, when I run it I loose control of my command window, since I cannot input any other order. I can open another Matlab and then can keep working while my data is being updated, but this is not the correct way. Any ideas? Later on I will build a GUI to operate the whole thing, but at the moment I have to do everything by calling m-files and input names throught the command window. Thanks in advance. Jordi
usually such things can be done using the function
You might think of timer as an "interrupt" called periodically by MATLAB.
