[farmshare-discuss] updating Matlab errors and outputs

The way I did is adding those commands to your script:

#MSUB -N task_name //here is your task name
#MSUB -k oe //output the output file and error file

Now, when the script is in progress, there will be two files stored on
your disk, task_name.e# and task_name.o#.

You can now use text editor to view these two files and track the progress.

Hopefully it is useful!

Best wishes,

As it is, the outputs and errors are blank until the .m file finishes running, or until I kill it with qdel, or until it encounters an error that causes it to terminate. However it would be very helpful if I could get the output and any errors associated with my .m file execution before the script is finished executing.
