% Iterating "saveas" or "print" function crashes after many iterations (e.g. 500):

% given the following set up where we have an array of vectors we wish to plot, loading vectors in loop, performing plotting, labelling and saving works successfully up to a limit. Above this limit, the octave engine crashes. In the GUI I reach a limit of 505 plots, in the CLI I reach the limit of 509 plots.

for i = dataIndex = 1:N %(e.g. N = 1000)

v1 = csvread(strcat(PATHTOFILE,v1Data(dataIndex ).name));
v2 = csvread(strcat(PATHTOFILE,v2Data(dataIndex ).name));

% assuming length(v1) == length(v2) - my measurements were length(v1) == length(v2) == circa 40 to 50

h = figure;


u = max(max(v1,v2));

xlim([0 u]);
ylim([0 u]);


% following assumes filenames are preallocated in filenameout:

The Windows system resources are very far from saturation. Can anyone else replicate this condition or similar?
