About "options_.console_mode=1"

Hi everybody.
I am studying the incorporation of observed data in a model with a guide already programmed. However, there is an option that is not very clear in the Dynare manual: "options_.console_mode = 1"

Does anyone know what it means?

The programming block is specified like this:

    • stoch_simul (…);
    • varobs …;
    • options_.console_mode = 1;
    • estimation (…);
    • shock_decomposition (…);

With options_.console_mode=1, Dynare will not display a waitbar using a GUI popup, but will rather display the waitbar in the command window output (and therefore log-file)
