Combines line plotting with annotation arrows.

parsepv(Param, pvpairs, varargin)
function [Param, extra] = parsepv(Param, pvpairs, varargin)
%PARSEPV Parses parameter/value pairs
%
% NewParam = parsepv(Param, pvpairs)
% [NewParam, extra] = parsepv(Param, pvpairs, 'returnextra')
%
% This function is an extension of parse_pv_pairs.  It allows the option of
% returning unrecognized parameter/value pairs, rather than erroring.
%
% Input variables:
%
%   Param:          1 x 1 structure holding default parameters (fieldnames)
%                   and values 
%
%   pvpairs:        1 x n cell array of parameter/value pairs
%
%   'returnextra':  if this string is included, the function will return a
%                   cell array holding any unrecognized parameters and the
%                   corresponding values.  Otherwise, it will error if a
%                   parameter is not recognized.  
%
% Output variables:
%
%   NewParam:       1 x 1 struct identical to Param but with defaults
%                   replaced by the values from pvpairs  
%
%   extra:          1 x m cell array of any unrecognized parameter/value
%                   pairs
