Calculate full-field displacements and strains from a set of images with a random speckle pattern.

ParforProgressStarter2(s, n, percentage, do_debug)
function ppm = ParforProgressStarter2(s, n, percentage, do_debug)
% Starter function for parfor progress-monitor, that will automatically 
% choose between a text or a GUI progress monitor. You can use this 
% progress-monitor in both for and parfor loops.
%
% ParforProgressStarter2 is the successor of ParforProgressStarter - it is 
% roughly 12 times more performant during GUI mode!
% 
% you should use it like this:
% 
%   N = 1000;
%   try % Initialization
%       ppm = ParforProgressStarter2('test', N, 0.1);
%   catch me % make sure "ParforProgressStarter2" didn't get moved to a different directory
%       if strcmp(me.message, 'Undefined function or method ''ParforProgressStarter2'' for input arguments of type ''char''.')
%           error('ParforProgressStarter2 not in path.');
%       else
%           % this should NEVER EVER happen.
%           msg{1} = 'Unknown error while initializing "ParforProgressStarter2":';
%           msg{2} = me.message;
%           print_error_red(msg);
%           % backup solution so that we can still continue.
%           ppm.increment = nan(1, nbr_files);
%       end
%   end
%
%   parfor i = 1 : N
%       your_crazy_function();
%       ppm.increment(i);
%   end
%
%   try % use try / catch here, since delete(struct) will raise an error.
%       delete(ppm);
%   catch me %#ok<NASGU>
%   end
