glminit(net, prior)
function net = glminit(net, prior)
%GLMINIT Initialise the weights in a generalized linear model.
%
%	Description
%
%	NET = GLMINIT(NET, PRIOR) takes a generalized linear model NET and
%	sets the weights and biases by sampling from a Gaussian distribution.
%	If PRIOR is a scalar, then all of the parameters (weights and biases)
%	are sampled from a single isotropic Gaussian with inverse variance
%	equal to PRIOR. If PRIOR is a data structure similar to that in
%	MLPPRIOR but for a single layer of weights, then the parameters are
%	sampled from multiple Gaussians according to their groupings (defined
%	by the INDEX field) with corresponding variances (defined by the
%	ALPHA field).
