***MathWorks has modified the File Exchange webpage format and this utility no longer functions. It is kept here for reference only.***

buildFexLibrary(fileList) will prompt the user to select or create a destination for the File Exchange (FEX) library and then attempt to download each FEX entry in the list into its own subfolder and append it to the search path.
A default list of useful utility functions on the File Exchange is provided in myFexList.m.
Several optional parameters can also be provided for more control over the behavior and features, for example to use checkVersion.
