EDIT: see answer by Daniel, throwascaller () is what I needed.
Is there a way, when generating an error(), to limit MATLAB output to 'msgIdent' and 'msgString' without the stack information? The reason for this question is that I created a class, overloaded subsref/asgn, and each one of these methods calls yet another method that checks/updates subs. From my prospective, a user who uses invalid subs should only get the error Ident/String that I define, without it to be followed by the whole stack.
I could obviously print the information on stderr and manage the termination by myself, but then usual exceptions management mechanisms could not be used by external code..
Thank you and best regards,
