A slightly safer Matlab wrapper for Win32-API Semaphore objects.
Allows to limit number of processes, that are allowed to enter a specific session of code simultaneously.
The code is based on https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/45504-semaphore-posix-and-windows by Andrew Smart.
The main changes in this version are:
* Allows to specify wait timeout
* Added a Matlab wrapper that automatically creates unique identifiers
* removed POSIX version

Quickstart:
1. Run "semaphore_build_mex.m" to build the mex
2. Run "demo_semaphore.m" to take a look on how it works
