Determine current format in command window

Asked by the cyclist

Is it possible to programmatically determine the current format of the command window? I want a program I am writing to use the "bank" format, but then restore the previous format when it has completed.

As explained in "doc format"...

But as not explained in "help format". Sadly, old habits die hard. :-)

The different levels of information in HELP and DOC are sometimes disturbing. I've mentioned this mostly to encourage beginners to read both. But why not encourage an advanced MATLAB user also?!
