function [f1_saved,f2_saved,info]=designHBF(fp,delta,debug)
%function [f1,f2,info]=designHBF(fp=0.2,delta=1e-5,debug=0)
%Design a half-band filter which can be realized without general multipliers.
%The filter is a composition of a prototype and sub- filter.
% fp	The normalized cutoff frequency of the filter. Due to the
%	symmetry imposed by a HBF, the stopband begins at 0.5-fp.
% delta	The absolute value of the deviation of the frequency response from 
%	the ideal values of 1 in the passband and  0 in the stopband.
% f1,f2	The coefficients of the prototype and sub-filters
%	and their canonical-signed digit (csd) representation.
% info	A vector containing the following data (only set when debug=1):
%	complexity	The number of additions per output sample.
%	n1,n2		The length of the f1 and f2 vectors.
%	sbr		The achieved stob-band attenuation (dB).
%	phi		The scaling factor for the F2 filter.

% To Do: Clean up the code a bit more, esp. wrt the use of the struct. arrays.
%	 Use the phi variable to cut down on the number of adders in F2.
%	 Apply a simulated annealing/genetic optimization alg instead
%	 of the ad hoc one I have now.
