How to answer a call for an input from the script?

1 view (last 30 days)
So I used the system('run.bat') in my script to run a series of commands that will ask certain questions. I want to code the answers to those questions in my script such that I dont have to manually answer them in MATLAB's command window. Is there a way to do this?

Thats what I guessed as well. I tried researching few possibilities but failed in all directions. If you have any tips or somewhere to look further let me know.

I know if you run system('MyApp.exe') and MyApp.exe asks for your input and you key in three letters 'abc',
then you can create a text file, e.g. input.txt which contains the text 'abc' without the single quotes,
then you can run system('MyApp.exe < input.txt') which will not require you to type in anymore.
This method have helped many in this forum.
Try this with your 'run.bat'. I am not sure if run.bat calls many App.exe, whether you can combine all the inputs into one text file.
