I need to make a continuous timer to be used with a Data Acquisition program. I am saving the acquired data every minute, and my timer will occur every hour, so I cannot use pause instead of a timer because I will not be able to save my data. I have been able to create timers that activate on a periodic basis, but they have a finite number of periods. I am looking to make a timer that runs indefinitely. I am using the core Matlab program to acquire my data, this program is in an .m file.
