How to save variable and use in future code?

Good afternoon! I have a problem using the factorial function. This function is called more than 1 million times during the entire code. Due to the large number of identical operations, I get a time for all factorial operations of about 60 seconds. I want to speed this up by calculating the factorial from 1 to 100 once and then returning the value from the resulting vector. How can I do this most effectively?

The following keeps a cache of all values up to the maximum used so far, and extends the cache as needed.
It uses symbolic toolbox in order to be able to return numerically meaningful results beyond factorial(15)
function f = ffactorial(n)
if isempty(precalc); precalc = sym(1); end %factorial(0)
if ~exist('n', 'var') || isempty(n)
f = precalc;
assert(all(n>=0) && all(n == fix(n)), 'non-negative integers only!')
for idx = length(precalc): max(n); precalc(idx+1) = precalc(idx) * idx; end
f = precalc(n+1); %vectorized lookup!
