Display updating line of text or textual waitbar in Matlab Command Window.
waittext is a fast full-featured text-based alternative to Matlab's GUI-based waitbar. See included help and demos for usage.
waittext is typically used inside of a for loop that performs a lengthy computation. waittext updates the current line very quickly. If a for loop takes less than 10 ms (0.01 sec.) to execute, it is reccomended that a textual waitbar be used or that waittext not be called every iteration in order for the updating text values to be more easily readable.
