This is a script based progress bar for MATLAB, simple usage is very simple, more complex usage is available. multiple instances no problem.
NOTE: special consideration has been given to not slowing down your hyper-optimised loops, so you should find this better than the sort of progress bar you get for free in a box of cereal.
NOTE: updated 12/05/2010 to be even better (twice as good) at not slowing down your loops. i think i really need to get a life.

slight appearance upgrade
Improved performance (twice as fast) in tight loops (inspired by comments from Bob Bemis).
Some people complained that progbar doesn't recognise colour codes. Well, it's not supposed to, unless you have the colour tool "rgb.m" on your path as well (see the help). This update simply adds "rgb.m".
