Dear all Matlab users,
When I am bored I am going to file exchange section and sort it by rating and learn new staff about Matlab.
We are all familiar with:
" This file was a File Exchange Pick of the Week "
I am wondering which file exchange is:
Best File Exchange Eever ?
1) Each answer should be follwed with a short description.
2) I suggest that each answer will contain only one file, in that way people can vote for individual answer.
In my opinion this is the best file exchange ever:

Matt Fig's 41 GUI examples are a valuable tutorial for beginners and advanced Matlab users. I personally would like to see it integrated in the official documentation:
Yair Altman's CPRINTF: Displays sprintf-formatted strings in the Command Window using the specified color/underline style.
This is an absolutely new feature to enhance the usability of the command line.

One tool from the FEX that I do use frequently is TIMEIT, by Steve Eddins. It gives me an accurate estimate of the time required for a code fragment when I find myself forced to optimize some code for speed. It is far more useful than tic and toc and more accurate. While the profiler itself is valuable too, code optimization forces you to focus on a specific small operation, which may have been identified as a bottleneck by the profiler.
Coolest submission without any use:
Sorry for posting 2 submissions - I simply cannot decide which one is better, and if a "best" submission must be "useful" for anything.
