Adds labels to each segment of a stacked bar chart. Labels are positioned within the middle of each bar segment (see example in function image).

The first input to the function (sb) is the handle to a stacked bar chart using the function 'bar', e.g. sb = bar([1 1; 2 2; 3 3],[60 40; 70 30; 20 80],'stacked'); . The second input to the function (t) is the text labels for each bar segment. Optional name-value pair arguments include the fontsize for the text labels (fs), the color of the text labels (col), and an option to skip columns in the labeling process (skip) (useful in situations where whole bars/columns are skipped to add spacing between bars on the x-axis).

Extra details and examples are within the function.
