This is an ASCII progress bar. It also displays the remaining and elapsed time. Due to the object-oriented implementation it is very easy to use.

I use 'dispstat' function just for this purpose. It can update the previous output which is a missing function of default 'disp'. Very simple to use. It can be downloaded from here:

***Sample usage:
dispstat('','init'); % One time only initialization
dispstat(sprintf('Begining the process...'),'keepthis','timestamp');
for i = 97:100
dispstat(sprintf('Progress %d%%',i),'timestamp');
%doing some heavy stuff here

11:25:37 Begining the process...
11:25:37 Progress 100%

All the best,
Kasim Tasdemir
