Great. This is what I was looking for. Quick and easy to use.

This doesn't work on Mac or Linux, because it assumes that '\' is the path separator. If line 36 is changed to

sub{end+1} = fullfile(CurrPath,i{:});

it should work on all platforms. You could also just replace '\' with pathsep, but fullfile is a little safer.
