Orthogonal Linear Regression in 3D-space by using Principal Components Analysis
This is a wrapper function to some pieces of the code from the Statistics Toolbox demo titled "Fitting an Orthogonal Regression Using Principal Components Analysis"

- XData: input data block -- x: axis
- YData: input data block -- y: axis
- ZData: input data block -- z: axis
- geometry: type of approximation ('line','plane')
- visualization: figure ('on','off') -- default is 'on'
- sod: show orthogonal distances ('on','off') -- default is 'on'
- Err: error of approximation - sum of orthogonal distances
- N: normal vector for plane, direction vector for line
- P: point on plane or line in 3D space
