Hello, I have a four cores machine, and I need to run a matlab code on each one of them. Say, I want the four files to run on each core in parallel not sequentially.The files do not interact with each other and they are all in the same folder.
Could anyone please tell me how to do that?
Say my files are: Pump1.m , Pump2.m, Pump3.m, Pump4.m
Thank you so much

To answer whether this is possible, it would help to know what those separate files do.
Are they scripts or functions? Do those functions accept inputs and/or return outputs? Do the scripts create workspace variables, MAT-files, other files?
The fact that the files do not interact is a good start as far as parallel computing feasibility.

They are scripts. They return outputs. And yes, they create variables in the workspace. Thank you

parpool(4)
parfor K = 1 : 4
if K == 1; Pump1; end
if K == 2; Pump2; end
if K == 3; Pump3; end
if K == 4; Pump4; end
end
You can also use spmd and test labindex()
It is also possible to generalize to a series of functions whose handles are given. However if you do that then you need to be sure to add those files to the parallel pool; otherwise the workers will not be able to find them through the handle. The code I show above is not pretty but it has the advantage that parfor can see the files clearly and so would know to make them available.
Note: if the routines do arithmetic computation on reasonable sized matrices, you might find that the overall result is slower than if you had executed them in sequence. By default each parallel worker only gets access to one core, but MATLAB tries to run "sufficiently large" array calculations in parallel, and that parallel operation can end up being more efficient than doing several unrelated things at the same time.

Above you wrote,
"They are scripts. They return outputs. And yes, they create variables in the workspace."
That is a problem. Scripts that are run within a parfor can, at most, assign to variables that were plainly assigned to earlier in the parfor. You should turn the scripts into functions that return appropriate values (if you care about the values outside of the parfor)

It works now. Thank you so much for your help.
