For this application it is convenient for me to build a latex file in matlab and compile it by
system(['pdflatex ', latexFile]);
Doing this, however, results in the latex compiler output being printed to my matlab console for example
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.20 (TeX Live 2019) (preloaded format=pdflatex)
restricted \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode
LaTeX2e <2020-02-02> patch level 1
but there's a lot more. Is there any way to supress this?
