Set the current verbosity level with e.g.:


Get the current verbosity level:

level = verbosity; % return the verbosity level (number)

Output a message when it is allowed by the current verbosity level:

verbosity('normal', 'message')
verbosity('verbose', 'message %g %s', arg1, arg2)
verbosity(2, 'message %g %s', arg1, arg2) % same as 'info'

Verbosity levels:

0 error (no message except errors)
