StepThru(mfile,ws)
function StepThru(mfile,ws)
%STEPTHRU automatically steps through specified m-file
%
%   STEPTHRU(MFILE) sets breakpoints at all but first line comment and
%   executes MFILE in order to step through it using debugger.
%
%       Line comments begin with % character. 
%
%       No breakpoint is generated if the text 'nobkpt' is 
%       anywhere in the line comment.
%
%   STEPTHRU(MFILE,WS) executes MFILE in specified
%   workspace (ie, 'caller' or 'base' valid).
