manage time computing

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi,
I would like to manage the computing time of a function. For example :
function y = myfun(x)
y = something_long_to_calculate(x);
return
and I would like my main code to do something like:
lim = 5; %time limit in sec
x = 0;
tic;
while toc<lim
y = myfun(x);
end
Obviously, I wouldn't work, the point is how could you limited the time of calculation. In this case, if y should have been a vector 100x1 and the program would just have had time to compute the 10 first iterations, how could I still got those values ?
thx
