Is there a command "between" return and quit that will exit from a workspace but leave me in the base workspace? return puts me into the caller workspace while quit exits matlab altogether. I simply want to close the program I'm in and get back to the >> prompt. I could of course execute a keyboard command, and then dbquit all, but I'd much prefer to be able to do it in one step.

One other limitation: I have dbstop if error set as a default. Obviously you have to dbclear this before coding in error(). But it's a small cost

As Bruno Luong pointed out, this does not work inside try-catch and also prints text to the command window.
