mlpinit(net, prior)
function net = mlpinit(net, prior)
%MLPINIT Initialise the weights in a 2-layer feedforward network.
%
%	Description
%
%	NET = MLPINIT(NET, PRIOR) takes a 2-layer feedforward network 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 of the kind generated by
%	MLPPRIOR, 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).
