Created attachment 633 suggested modifications of getcustompwd.m Matlab can be slowed down very much if the current directory contains a lot of files (e.g. > 10^3-10^4; see also In case of large batch jobs, qsubcellfun writes a significant number of files to the current directory and can therefore run into this issue. Suggested solution: adapt getcustompwd (e.g. as in attachment) and in qsubfeval and qsubget change this line: curPwd = getcustompwd(); into this one: curPwd = getcustompwd('qsub_iofiles'); In addition, the qsub submitoptions should also be extended with a "-o qsub_iofiles' option. This requires a simple modification of qsubfeval, but maybe of some other functions too?

this requires changing the overall directory handling in the code. There are now multiple locations where the current pwd is assumed to hold the input and output, it would have to be changed everywhere and the working directory would have to be passed around constantly (or stored in the qsublist). I consider this too much hassle and won't work on it.

Hereby I am closing several bugs that have been resolved for some time (WONTFIX, WORKSFORME, etc.). If you disagree, please reopen and explain.
