I have a program that can be called using the command line. If I call said program, it enters and I can type commands and get return values. I want to call this program from Matlab. However, system() never returns since the cli program blocks the command line. Is there a way to pass arguments to such a program?

If this were *nix, you may be able to write an expect script to handle getting into and out of the other CLI program.
man expect
I don't know how this would be done in Windows. I don't know of a pure Matlab way to do this; maybe there is, but nothing comes to mind.
