I would like to run a calculation so that when it has converged, a song will play.... to alert me from the other room (for example).

I found this but can't quite put it together? Their example was:


Load and play a sample audio file of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus:"

load handel;
player = audioplayer(y, Fs);

I'm not clear on this..... Okay, so any explanations greatly appreciated; also, you are welcome to suggest a tune to play once convergence is met (its a non-linear least squares problem, maybe it will inspire the tune :O)

where y is the wavefile you want to play and Fs is the sample rate.

you can write your own music:

or you can load the handel edxample that comes with matlab, which comes with its own "y" and "Fs"

load handel.mat;
sound(y, Fs);
