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.
% do hard work here...

I have a qustion about progress bar. I wanna read a file and display a time-consum progress bar under it, but i cann't estimate how much time it used. So how do you know the percentage?
beautiful, works like a charm. simple but useful.
Very useful and easy to call
Simple use and excellent.
Great tool. Useful for long calculations where your not sure how far matlab has got!
Exelent tool, easy for use. Just one problem, in R13 it don't recongnise color codes.
Worked perfectly and easily. However, does not recognize color codes such as 'r' (red==>[1 0 0]) with version 6.5 R13
Worked perfectly without modification. Thanks!
very nice tool, needs modification for windows 2000 and Matlab 6.1
Did not work properly under Matlab 6.0 and Windows XP
To fix the problem, replace lines 122-127 with:
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".
Fixed XP issue. Now works properly under XP/v6.
