This example shows the process to terminate a dead loop or a function automatically.
The idea is to check the Process ID of the running matlab in windows. When the time for running some functions takes too long a time, then kill the job by DOS
command: taskkill -f /pid PID
The command to get the PID of the running job can be obtanied by DOS command: System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName.
The main control subroutine is main_control.m; and dummy_dead_loop.m is to simulate the dead endless loop or a function.
