function [codebook,class,quant_errs]=vector_quantization(X,K,Tol)
%Finds a KxN codebook representing the samples in an MxN data matrix X,
% of which each row represents a sample, by continuing the iteration 
% until quantization error difference between successive iterations<Tol
% Output arguments
%  codebook: A KxN matrix with each row being a code vector
%  class   : An Mx1 vector of code number tos which each sample belongs
%  quant_erros: Quantization error history
% Example:
%   M=200; N=2; X = randn(M,N); K = 3; Tol = 1e-12;
%   [codebook,class,quantization_error] = vector_quantization(X,K,Tol)
