Extended version of the idea Loren described here:
Say you have a loop that's running for a while. You're not sure whether it's worth getting a cup of coffee or not, so you display the current iteration using "disp(i)". At some point you're Matlab console is flooded with numbers, that's annoying. Especially if your loop does also display warnings. That's where this function comes to play. You just display the iteration using
In contrast to other contributions I found, this code is able to handle multiple lines of continuously updated text and has a basic plotting capabilities:

writeConsoleCont(); % initialization - always execute this first
for k = 0:100
writeConsoleCont(k); % numerical data
writeConsoleCont("Some text and plot", k, k^2);
