This cool feature will be useful to many MATLAB users that write functions and want an easy way to test them in multiple configurations.
I like to hit F5 to save and run a script, but in the past if you had a function, you could not do this since you usually need to give inputs to a function. Run configurations allow you to run a little script to feed the function inputs. Want to test your new function with a few small data sets easily? Normally you might make a script to do that, and then have to write a new one for when you want to test against the full data set. With run configurations you can easily change between the two and run with a click of F5.
