drawLabels(varargin)
```function varargout = drawLabels(varargin)
%DRAWLABELS Draw labels at specified positions
%
%   DRAWLABELS(X, Y, LBL) draw labels LBL at position X and Y.
%   LBL can be either a string array, or a number array. In this case,
%   string are created by using sprintf function, with '%.2f' mask.
%
%   DRAWLABELS(POS, LBL) draw labels LBL at position specified by POS,
%   where POS is a N*2 int array.
%
%   DRAWLABELS(..., NUMBERS, FORMAT) create labels using sprintf function,
%   with the mask given by FORMAT (e. g. '%03d' or '5.3f'), and the
%   corresponding values.
