[outputx, outputy]=ellipse(ra,rb,ang,x0,y0,C,Nb)
function [outputx, outputy]=ellipse(ra,rb,ang,x0,y0,C,Nb)
% Ellipse adds ellipses to the current plot
%
% ELLIPSE(ra,rb,ang,x0,y0) adds an ellipse with semimajor axis of ra,
% a semimajor axis of radius rb, a semimajor axis of ang, centered at
% the point x0,y0.
%
% The length of ra, rb, and ang should be the same. 
% If ra is a vector of length L and x0,y0 scalars, L ellipses
% are added at point x0,y0.
% If ra is a scalar and x0,y0 vectors of length M, M ellipse are with the same 
% radii are added at the points x0,y0.
% If ra, x0, y0 are vectors of the same length L=M, M ellipses are added.
% If ra is a vector of length L and x0, y0 are  vectors of length
% M~=L, L*M ellipses are added, at each point x0,y0, L ellipses of radius ra.
%
% ELLIPSE(ra,rb,ang,x0,y0,C)
% adds ellipses of color C. C may be a string ('r','b',...) or the RGB value. 
% If no color is specified, it makes automatic use of the colors specified by 
% the axes ColorOrder property. For several circles C may be a vector.
%
% ELLIPSE(ra,rb,ang,x0,y0,C,Nb), Nb specifies the number of points
% used to draw the ellipse. The default value is 300. Nb may be used
% for each ellipse individually.
%
% h=ELLIPSE(...) returns the handles to the ellipses.
%
% as a sample of how ellipse works, the following produces a red ellipse
% tipped up at a 45 deg axis from the x axis
% ellipse(1,2,pi/8,1,1,'r')
%
% note that if ra=rb, ELLIPSE plots a circle
