I am having a script(myscript), that throws an error whenever there is any part of hardware missing, which is defined in different ways to be used inside of the script.
What I want to do is that whenever any error (maybe even some different error, that I may have not encountered before), whenever "any kind of error" occurs, the script shall retry running for one more time. What would be the best way to do this.
Is try catch the only option, and if yes please edify for how can I use it for 'myscript' to be executed one more time, when the error happens.
Thanks in advance

First of all, thanks a lot for your reply.
I have couple of questions for to ask you, firstly what do you mean by 'sealed workspace'?
Secondly, its fine in my case for the second run to overwrite, but what do you mean by 'fully exposed workspace'.
And finally the script is like calling for connections for bunch of different hardware and functions inside of itself. My question is, Ideally how would you convert that kind of script into a function, for which the input argument should be just the name of the script (like run button on the matlab) and the output argument is an m*5 matrix(pick).

nRetry = 8;
for k = 1:nRetry
break; % Exit from the loop on success
catch ME
fprintf('*** Failed: %s\n Retrying...\n', ME.message);
