s=simprl(f,a,b,M)
```function s=simprl(f,a,b,M)

%Input     - f is the integrand
%             - a and b are upper and lower limits of integration
%             - M is the number of subintervals
%Output  - s is the simpson rule sum

%If f is defined as an M-file function use the @ notation
% call s=simprl(@f,a,b,M).
%If f is defined as an anonymous function use the
% call s=simprl(f,a,b,M).
