So I'm running into an increasingly annoying problem while using Oct2Py in my python code to run a few Matlab codes. Every time I run Oct2py in my script it opens in my processes an octave-cli.exe *32 for each one but does not close it after the process is finished. Since I have multiple uses of it and now wish to have a loop of about a thousand this has become a problem.
Is there some command I can give to close the octave client after the run has been performed? I haven't found any references about this.
ans = oc.read_file(filename)
exit method of the
Oct2Py class will close the underlying Octave session.
ans = oc.read_file(filename) oc.exit()
The constant spawning of Octave sessions in a loop may itself be a performance bottleneck. it may be worth writing your code such that you can reuse the
Oct2Py instance each time through the loop.
octave = Oct2Py() for filename in filenames: # Call Octave command output = octave.read_file(filename) # Perform any necessary cleanup
