This package provides parallel processing on multiple cores/machines.

mbdelete(fileName, showWarnings, throwError)
function deleteSuccessful = mbdelete(fileName, showWarnings, throwError)
%MBDELETE  Delete file and check possible warnings.
%   RESULT = MBDELETE(FILE) will check if file FILE is existing, try to
%   delete the file and check if the deletion caused a warning afterwards.
%   If the file could be deleted or was not existing, TRUE is returned,
%   otherwise FALSE.
%
%   RESULT = MBDELETE(FILE, SHOWWARNING, THROWERROR) with THROWERROR
%   evaluating to TRUE will cause MBDELETE to throw an error if Matlab
%   would have given a warning. With SHOWWARNING evaluating to false,
%   MBDELETE will not display a warning. Default values are THROWERROR =
%   FALSE and SHOWWARNING = TRUE.
