# optim_report.m

Jump to: navigation, search

Similar in functionality to report.m, except with the option of removing some of the file location string, and does not require the spin_system argument.

## Syntax

    optim_report(output,report_string,depth,close_file)


## Description

Writes a log message to the console or an ACSII file.

## Arguments

    output          - identifier for output method. Options are 'hush' to suppress
the output, or an integer file identifier.

report_string   - a character string. A newline symbol at the end of the
string is not necessary - it is added by the function.

depth           - the amount of top level stack to ignore, default is 0.

close_file      - is a logical true or false, to close the output file if one
was previously defined (see notes below).


## Notes

For the output to a file, output is a file identifier inherited from optim_tols.m (input as string of file-name to optim_tols.m), or set it to 1 (for standard output, the screen) or 2 (standard error).
