introduce posterior_nograph option
I think it would be useful to have an option like:
with default value at 0 like standard nograph.
This option would allow performing all possible posterior subdraws for irfs, smoothed variables etc, but avoiding to produce thousands of useless graphs that are currently done [for large models at least].
I think it would also be useful to make a distinction w.r.t.
options_.nograph since the latter would not trigger prior/posterior plots of parameter estimates which would be required in any case.
And by the way,
posterior_irf do not seem to honor the nograph option: plots are made in any case. So at least we should make sure
nograph would work properly?
If you agree, I would make the appropriate changes to the matlab
posterior_irf routines with
posterior_nograph [the preprocessor could be updated with this extra option, then].
