NOTE: this function is now available from the IoSR Matlab Toolbox as iosr.figures.cmrMap.
Create a monochrome-compatible colour map
cmap = CMRmap
cmap = CMRmap(M)
cmap = CMRmap returns a colour map CMAP (varying black - purple - red - yellow - white) that is monochrome-compatible, i.e. it produces a monotonic greyscale colour map. CMAP is size Mx3, where M is the length of the current figure's colormap. If no figure exists, MATLAB creates one.
cmap = CMRmap(M) sets the colormap length to M.
The map is a slight modification to that suggested in .
