Update of bug #62829 (project octave):

                  Status:                    None => Need Info              
                 Release:                   6.4.0 => dev                    
                 Summary: help missing text for warning => "quiet" warning
state is undocumented


Follow-up Comment #1:

looking at the code for warning, it does appear that there is an undocumented
"quiet" warning state.  

the state can be set on/off with the command style call to warning mentioned
in comment #0, or by the function style syntax

>> warning("on", "quiet")
>> warning("off", "quiet")

and can be queried like any other warning state by

>> warning("query", "quiet")
"quiet" warning state is "on"

I don't know if this was added for matlab compatibility, as a quick search
doesn't turn up anything there. We don't always document things that are added
just for that reason. but it would be good to know what this state actually
changes and to document it if it's useful. 

updating report title and changing to "Need info" from someone more for
familiar with the warning function.
