Price European or American spread options using finite difference method

`Price = spreadbyfd(RateSpec,StockSpec1,StockSpec2,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike,Corr)`

`Price = spreadbyfd(___,Name,Value)`

```
[Price,PriceGrid,AssetPrice1,AssetPrice2,Times]
= spreadbyfd(RateSpec,StockSpec1,StockSpec2,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike,Corr)
```

```
[Price,PriceGrid,AssetPrice1,AssetPrice2,Times]
= spreadbyfd(___,Name,Value)
```

returns
the price of European or American call or put spread options using
the Alternate Direction Implicit (ADI) finite difference method. The
spread is between the asset defined in `Price`
