consist(model, type, inputs, outputs)
function errstring = consist(model, type, inputs, outputs)
%CONSIST Check that arguments are consistent.
%
%	Description
%
%	ERRSTRING = CONSIST(NET, TYPE, INPUTS) takes a network data structure
%	NET together with a string TYPE containing the correct network type,
%	a matrix INPUTS of input vectors and checks that the data structure
%	is consistent with the other arguments.  An empty string is returned
%	if there is no error, otherwise the string contains the relevant
%	error message.  If the TYPE string is empty, then any type of network
%	is allowed.
%
%	ERRSTRING = CONSIST(NET, TYPE) takes a network data structure NET
%	together with a string TYPE containing the correct  network type, and
%	checks that the two types match.
%
%	ERRSTRING = CONSIST(NET, TYPE, INPUTS, OUTPUTS) also checks that the
%	network has the correct number of outputs, and that the number of
%	patterns in the INPUTS and OUTPUTS is the same.  The fields in NET
%	that are used are
%	  type
%	  nin
%	  nout
