createTranslation3d(varargin)
function trans = createTranslation3d(varargin)
%CREATETRANSLATION3D Create the 4x4 matrix of a 3D translation
%
%   usage:
%   TRANS = createTranslation3d(DX, DY, DZ);
%   return the translation corresponding to DX and DY.
%   The returned matrix has the form :
%   [1 0 0 DX]
%   [0 1 0 DY]
%   [0 0 1 DZ]
%   [0 0 0  1]
%
%   TRANS = createTranslation3d(VECT);
%   return the translation corresponding to the given vector [x y z].
