Routines for running many tasks in parallel across several computers---essentially a low-budget, low-hassle substitute for a cluster.

As its primary use-case, this toolbox provides a simple mechanism for running many MATLAB tasks (i.e., functions) in parallel across a number of different computers. All of the computers must have MATLAB and have read/write access to a shared folder, presumably on a network drive. A master computer is given a list of tasks to be executed (i.e., as strings in a cell array or file), and slave computers are started to execute the individual tasks one by one. The Master and Slave functions of the toolbox coordinate the assignment of tasks to slaves.
