This package provides parallel processing on multiple cores/machines.

getfiledate(fileNameIn)
function fileDateVector = getfiledate(fileNameIn)
%GETFILEDATE  Get file modification date as serial date number.
%   FILEDATE = GETFILEDATE(FILENAME) returns the modification date of the
%   given file as a serial number.
%
%   FILEDATES = GETFILEDATE(FILENAMECELL) works on the cell FILENAMECELL of
%   file names and returns a vector of file dates.
