make matlab stop waiting for system return

1 view (last 30 days)
I want to run a program (putty) to make a ssh connection. I do this by e.g.
system('putty -load Terrameter -l root -pw root');
Now Matlab is waiting for the command prompt to close. But I want Matlab to continue its code and not wait for a return from putty. I need to keep this prompt open while I continue my matlab code.
How is this possible?

no, but thanks anyway. I fixed it by calling a bat-file instead :D

Do you have Parallel Computing Toolbox?
batch(@system,0,{'putty -load Terrameter -l root -pw root'})
