% beamanim(x,u,tpause,titl,xlabl,ylabl)
% ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
% This function draws an animated plot of data 
% values stored in array u.  The different 
% columns of u correspond to position values 
% in vector x.  The successive rows of u 
% correspond to different times. Parameter 
% tpause controls the speed of animation.
%  u      - matrix of values to animate plots 
%           of u versus x
%  x      - spatial positions for different 
%           columns of u
%  tpause - clock seconds between output of 
%           frames. The default is .1 secs 
%           when tpause is left out. When 
%           tpause=0, a new frame appears 
%           when the user presses any key.
%  titl   - graph title
%  xlabl  - label for horizontal axis
%  ylabl  - label for vertical axis
