%GPCOVARP Calculate the prior covariance for a Gaussian Process.
%
%	Description
%
%	COVP = GPCOVARP(NET, X1, X2) takes  a Gaussian Process data structure
%	NET together with two matrices X1 and X2 of input vectors,  and
%	computes the matrix of the prior covariance.  This is the function
%	component of the covariance plus the exponential of the bias term.
%
%	[COVP, COVF] = GPCOVARP(NET, X1, X2) also returns the function
%	component of the covariance.
