This script loads selected SPM batch, tries to intelligently guess which fields are potential candidates for “parallel splits” and after interactively asking for confirmation:
splits your batch into multiple .mat, .m and .sh files (placing them in the same directory as the original batch) – the latter being ready for submission to Sun Grid Engine queue, e.g.:
for i in *.sh; do qsub $i; done
Splits are done 1:1, meaning that all the fields you select must have the same size. Tested with: NewSegment, Run DARTEL (existing Templates) and Normalize to MNI Space but has much more generic potential! Enjoy!
