is there a possibility to control this feature (e.g. temporarily deactivate or read the settings value) from within a script?
Background is that I have a script that contains a parfor loop. For this parfor loop to work on workers there needs to be done some initializing though before entering the loop. This initialization is omitted when the matlabpool is automatically created when reaching the parfor loop.
This means I either need to start the matlabpool before reaching the loop so I can do the initialization (which I don't want to do by default) or (as an ugly workaround) I could add a dummy parfor loop to trigger the automatic startup of the matlabpool due to the new setting early.
Is there a proper way to control the preference (without user interaction)?
