Data import and peak search

P=findpeaks(x,y,SlopeThreshold,AmpThreshold,smoothwidth,peakgroup)
```function P=findpeaks(x,y,SlopeThreshold,AmpThreshold,smoothwidth,peakgroup)
% Function to locate the positive peaks in a noisy x-y data
% set.  Detects peaks by looking for downward zero-crossings
% in the first derivative that exceed SlopeThreshold.
% Determines the position, height, and width of
% each peak by fitting the log of top part of the peak with
% a parabola.  Returns list (P) containing peak number and
% position, height, and width of each peak. SlopeThreshold,
% AmpThreshold, and smoothwidth control sensitivity
% Higher values will neglect smaller features. Peakgroup
% is the number of points around the "top part" of the peak.
