Global variables in parfor loop
96 次查看（过去 30 天）
I am using global variables in parfor loop and I get following m-lint
The code uses a global variable in a parfor loop. Because parfor loops run on several different machines simultaneously, the global workspace might not be the same on each machine. Therefore, using a global variable in a parfor loop could have unpredictable or unexpected results and Code Analyzer flags it as an error.
This is my code:
GLOBAL_DATA,GEOMORPH); % these two are global variables
Any suggestions on how to fix it? I don't understand the suggested fix by MATLAB. The suggestion by MATLAB is:
Make local copies of the global variables that you want to use within the parfor loop before beginning the parfor loop
Also,I am not changing my global variables in parfor loop.

What was the suggestion by Matlab? Have you read through the plethora of answers to this topic?
There are lots of reasons not to use global variables at all and this is one of them. As the error message indicates, parfor() is executed in parallel potentially between >1 machine. Global variable are not accessible between machines. So you'll have to initialize them independently within your code.
