mstripr(er,Z0,per)
% mstripr.m - microstrip synthesis with refinement (calculates w/h from Z)
%
% Usage: [u,N] = mstripr(er,Z0,per)
%        [u,N] = mstripr(er,Z0)     (equivalent to per=0.2)
%
% er  = relative permittivity of substrate
% Z0  = desired characteristic impedance
% per = percent accuracy for Z0 and u, typically, 0.1<per<0.2
%
% u = width-to-height ratio = w/h
% N = number of refinement iterations
%
% uses mstrips and mstripa
