%# @deftypefn {Function File} {[@var{ret}] =} odeplot (@var{t}, @var{y}, @var{flag})
%# Open a new figure window and plot the results from the variable @var{y} of type column vector over time while solving. The types and the values of the input parameter @var{t} and the output parameter @var{ret} depend on the input value @var{flag} that is of type string. If @var{flag} is
%# @table @option
%# @item  @code{"init"}
%# then @var{t} must be a double column vector of length 2 with the first and the last time step and nothing is returned from this function,
%# @item  @code{""}
%# then @var{t} must be a double scalar specifying the actual time step and the return value is false (resp. value 0) for 'not stop solving',
%# @item  @code{"done"}
%# then @var{t} must be a double scalar specifying the last time step and nothing is returned from this function.
%# @end table
%# This function is called by a OdePkg solver function if it was specified in an OdePkg options structure with the @command{odeset}. This function is an OdePkg internal helper function therefore it should never be necessary that this function is called directly by a user. There is only little error detection implemented in this function file to achieve the highest performance.
%# For example, solve an anonymous implementation of the "Van der Pol" equation and display the results while solving
%# @example
%# fvdb = @@(vt,vy) [vy(2); (1 - vy(1)^2) * vy(2) - vy(1)];
%# vopt = odeset ('OutputFcn', @@odeplot, 'RelTol', 1e-6);
%# vsol = ode45 (fvdb, [0 20], [2 0], vopt);
%# @end example
%# @end deftypefn
%# @seealso{odepkg}
