Parallel for-Loops (parfor)

Use parallel processing by running parfor on workers in a parallel pool

Parallel Computing Toolbox™ supports interactive parallel computing and enables you to accelerate your workflow by running on multiple workers in a parallel pool. Use parfor to execute for-loop iterations in parallel on workers in a parallel pool. When you have profiled your code and identified slow for-loops, try parfor to increase your throughput. Develop parfor-loops on your desktop and scale up to a cluster without changing your code.
