pdist: Partitioned Distance Function

Computes the euclidean distance between rows of a matrix X and rows of another matrix Y. Previously, this could be done by binding the two matrices together and calling 'dist', but this creates unnecessary computation by computing the distances between a row of X and another row of X, and likewise for Y. pdist strictly computes distances across the two matrices, not within the same matrix, making computations significantly faster for certain use cases.
