Report Generation: Capturing hundreds of figures

4 views (last 30 days)
I'm generating a simple report, and have developed code to build 100 subplots, each with five plots, for a Matlab generated report. Unfortunatly, I can only get through about 65 of the figures before matlab barfs and crashes. I have not figured out how to trick matlab to capture the figures as they are generated so I can close them-- the eval code generates all the figures.
I'm considering just engineering a stop command in to do the first fifty, then loop the figure snapshots, then capture the next 50, but it seems an inelegant way to approach the problem.

Did you try increasing the Java heap space?
Sometimes Report Generator causes out-of-memory issues because it stores the image snapshots in memory before publishing the entire document.

Chances are you don't need 50 or 100 open up all simultaneously. Just create one at a time. Create it, save it with export_fig(), then close it down, then repeat for all the other 99 figure windows. That way you only have one open at a time.
