Thanks a lot for pointing this out, Allan. So now if I write
(matlab -nosplash -nodesktop < in &> out) &>/dev/null &
inside a TM command it's letting the command exit while MATLAB continues running in the background. I'll have to continue fiddling with this later today.

Hi everyone, I'm trying to write a TM command that will set up some FIFOs, launch a process connected to those, and then the command will exit [...] when I try to implement this inside a TM command, the command doesn't exit until the launched process also exits.
This is because TextMate will wait till your process close stdout/error.
We have a ruby wrapper for this (which catch exceptions), for more info: http://wiki.macromates.com/HowTo/RunCommandInBackground
