Calling some MATLAB function with suppressed outputs

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello all!
Let's say that we want to call some user-defined MATLAB function as:
[x, ~, y] = my_function(inputs);
where second output of the function is suppressed. Is there any way for function my_function to know which outputs are suppressed?
Best, Marko.

Unfortunatley there is not (as far as I know; see for example this thread )
Depending on what you need that functionality for you might achieve a similar result using variable number of outputs and checking the number of outputs requested by the caller (see varargout and nargout) and/or using additional input arguments specifying which particular combination of outputs you would like to have...
