Display, tester and solver of the Rubik's game, including "full cubes".

list=string2hist(cmd)
function list=string2hist(cmd)
%string2hist - convert a string of commands to a numerical list
%  list=string2hist(cmd)
%    F(ront),R(ight),U(p) are axes 1,2,3 on positive sides
%    B(ack),L(eft),D(own) are these axes on negative sides
%  a list is something like
%    FR2(UR)3, which means Front (clockwise (direction 1)), double right
%       three times the combination of Up and Right
%       ("'" can also be used for 3 rotates clockwise - or reverse)
%    the list may be ended with ".", after which all characters are not used
