Plot 2- or 3- circle area-proportional Venn diagram

venn (varargin)
function varargout = venn (varargin)

%VENN   Plot 2- or 3- circle area-proportional Venn diagram
%  venn(A, I)
%  venn(Z)
%  venn(..., F)
%  venn(..., 'ErrMinMode', MODE)
%  H = venn(...)
%  [H, S] = venn(...)
%  [H, S] = venn(..., 'Plot', 'off')
%  S = venn(..., 'Plot', 'off')
%  [...] = venn(..., P1, V1, P2, V2, ...) 
%venn(A, I) by itself plots circles with total areas A, and intersection
%area(s) I. For two-circle venn diagrams, A is a two element vector of circle 
%areas [c1 c2] and I is a scalar specifying the area of intersection between 
%them. For three-circle venn diagrams, A is a three element vector [c1 c2 c3], 
%and I is a four element vector [i12 i13 i23 i123], specifiying the 
%two-circle intersection areas i12, i13, i23, and the three-circle
%intersection i123.
%venn(Z) plots a Venn diagram with zone areas specified by the vector Z. 
%For a 2-circle venn diagram, Z is a three element vector [z1 z2 z12]
%For a 3-circle venn, Z is a 7 element vector [z1 z2 z3 z12 z13 z23 z123]
%venn(..., F) specifies optional optimization options. VENN uses FMINBND to
%locate optimum pair-wise circle distances, and FMINSEARCH to optimize
%overall three-circle alignment. F is a structure with fields specifying
%optimization options for these functions. F may be a two-element array of
%structures, in which case the first structure is used for FMINBND
%function calls, and the second structure is used for FMINSEARCH function
%venn(..., 'ErrMinMode', MODE)
%Used for 3-circle venn diagrams only. MODE can be 'TotalError' (default), 
%'None', or 'ChowRodgers'. When ErrMinMode is 'None', the positions and 
%sizes of the three circles are fixed by their pairwise-intersections, 
%which means there may be a large amount of error in the area of the three-
%circle intersection. Specifying ErrMinMode as 'TotalError' attempts to 
%minimize the total error in all four intersection zones. The area of the 
%three circles are kept constant in proportion to their populations. The 
%'ChowRodgers' mode uses the the method proposed by Chow and Rodgers 
%[Ref. 1] to draw 'nice' three-circle venn diagrams which appear more 
%visually representative of the desired areas, although the actual areas of 
%the circles are allowed to deviate from requested values.
%H = venn(...) returns a two- or three- element vector to the patches 
%representing the circles. 
%[H, S] = venn(...) returns a structure containing descriptive values
%computed for the requested venn diagram. S is a structure with the
%following fields, where C is the number of circles (N = 2 or 3), Z is
%the number of zones (Z = 3 or 7), and I is the number of intersection 
%areas (1 or 4)
% Radius            C-element vector of circle radii
% Position          C*2 array of circle centers
% ZoneCentroid      Z*2 array of zone centroids (Can be used for labeling)
% CirclePop         C-element vector of supplied circle populations. 
%                   (I.e., the 'true' circle areas)
% CircleArea        C-element of actual circle areas
% CircleAreaError   = (CircleArea-CirclePop)/CirclePop
% IntersectPop      I-element vector of supplied intersection populations
%                   (I.e., the 'true' intersection areas)
% IntersectArea     I-element vector of actual intersection areas
% IntersectError    = (IntersectArea-IntersectPop)/IntersectPop
% ZonePop           Z-element vector of supplied zone populations. (I.e.
%                   'true' zone areas
% ZoneArea          Z-element vector of actual zone areas.
% ZoneAreaError     = (ZoneArea-ZonePop)/ZonePop
%[H, S] = venn(..., 'Plot', 'off')
%S = venn(..., 'Plot', 'off')
%Returns a structure of computed values, without plotting the diagram. This 
%which can be useful when S is used to draw custom venn diagrams or for 
%exporting venn diagram data to another application. When Plot is set to off, 
%the handles vector H is returned as an empty array. Alternatively, the command
%S = venn(..., 'Plot', 'off) will return only the output structure.
%[...] = venn(..., P1, V1, P2, V2, ...) 
%Specifies additional patch settings in standard Matlab parameter/value 
%pair syntax. Parameters can be any valid patch parameter. Values for patch 
%parameters can either be single values, or a cell array of length LENGTH(A), 
%in which case each value in the cell array is applied to the corresponding 
%circle in A.
