batch arguements 'pool' v 'matlabpool'?

3 views (last 30 days)
I'm still running Matlab 2013a, and learning the Parallel computing toolbox. Noticed in the tutorials that to specify a pool for a batch job, you want to use the pair 'pool',<number of workers>. In 2013a, this doesn't work, but 'matlabpool',<number of workers> does. going to be sharing this script with others who have both older and newer versions of matlab. Should I be concerned to make the call to 'pool' also compatible, or will 'matlabpool' be a supported arguement in future/previous editions?

The older 'Matlabpool' parameter is still supported in the newer versions of Parallel Computing Toolbox, but it will be removed at some point.
