## @deftypefn {Function File} {} bw_retrieve (@var{f}, @var{args}, @var{fn}, [@var{matlab}])
## Retrieve results of computations started with @code{bw_start ()}.
## Computation need not be finished for all arguments. @var{f}, @var{args}:
## function name and filename of arguments given to @code{bw_start ()}. @var{fn}:
## path to file to save results in. @var{matlab}: if given and true, results
## are stored in Matlab compatible binary format; otherwise the binary
## format of Octave is used.
##
## Three variables are saved, "results" is a cell-array of results (empty
## entry if no result), one for each argument set, "errors" a vector
## with non-zero elements for each argument set which caused an error,
## and "messages" is a cell-array of the respective error messages, or
## empty values if there was none.
## @seealso {bw_start, bw_list, bw_clear}
