We have historical startup.m file, which asks user on what kind of software he wants to choose during startup (conflicting software) e.g.
ch=input('type a if you want to use a and anything else if b','s')
Everything was working fine in earlier versions of Matlab, but 2013a and 2013b just sits on blinking cursor. you have to guess and type something -- then it goes further.
It also works fine if one types startup on initialized session, namely:.
it also generates java error message:
java.lang.ClassCastException: com.mathworks.jmi.types.MLArrayRef cannot be cast to java.lang.String
but this is may be something to do with the software itself which uses com, though it works for other software and not during the startup process. Does anybody know how to deal with this annoying issue?
