% vprop.m - voltage and current propagation

% Usage: [V1,I1] = vprop(V2,I2,Z0,bl)         
%
% V2,I2 = voltage and current at point z2
% Z0    = line impedance
% bl    = phase length in radians = beta*l = 2*pi*l/lambda
%
% V1,I1 = voltage and current at point z1
%
% notes: for a lossy line bl can also be complex, i.e., bl-j*al
