Actually, that isn't what you really wanted...probably a case where a simple loop is as efficient as any other solution...
res=zeros(500,size(dat,2)); % preallocate for ix=1:length(idvec) res(:,ix)=dat(idvec:idvec+499,ix); end
accumarray() can do it but probably not any faster than the explicit loop
Again, of course, need the error checking...
