Data import and peak search

P=ipf(x,y)
function P=ipf(x,y)
% Interactive Peek Find function, P=ipf(x,y,WidthPoints),
% where x and y are the data (x=independent variable, 
% y=dependent variable).  Peak number and position, height, 
% and width of each peak is returned in the matrix P. 
% Adjust the sliders to determine what values of the findpeaks
% parameters give the most reliable peak detection. The function
% returns a matrix of position, height, and width of each peak.
% The 4 slider-controlled parameters are:
% SlopeThreshold (SlopeT) - Slope of the smoothed third-derivative that is  
%   taken to indicate a peak. Larger values will neglect small features.
% AmpThreshold (AmpT) - Any peaks with height less than this value are ignored.
% SmoothWidth (Smooth) - Width of smooth functions applied to data before slope is
%   measured. Larger values will neglect small features. The best value is 
%   about equal to the half-width of the peaks.
% FitWidth (Fit) - The number of points around the "top part" of the (unsmoothed)
%   peak that are taken to determine the peak height, positions, and width.
%   The best value is about equal to the half-width of the peaks.
% The BG button is used to remove background (offset). Click on this
%    button, then click on the background at 10 points. (To change the
%    number of points, edit BackgroundPoints in findpeaksliders6.
% Note: If the slider ranges are not appropriate for your data, change 
%    them in lines 64-69. Set WidthPoints in line 48 to the 
%    average number of points in half-width of peaks 
%    to set the initial values of the sliders.
