%                  l_curve(U,s,b,method)
%                  l_curve(U,sm,b,method)  ,  sm = [sigma,mu]
%                  l_curve(U,s,b,method,L,V)
%
% Plots the L-shaped curve of eta, the solution norm || x || or
% semi-norm || L x ||, as a function of rho, the residual norm
% || A x - b ||, for the following methods:
%    method = 'Tikh'  : Tikhonov regularization   (solid line )
%    method = 'tsvd'  : truncated SVD or GSVD     (o markers  )
%    method = 'dsvd'  : damped SVD or GSVD        (dotted line)
%    method = 'mtsvd' : modified TSVD             (x markers  )
% The corresponding reg. parameters are returned in reg_param.  If no
% method is specified then 'Tikh' is default.  For other methods use plot_lc.
%
% Note that 'Tikh', 'tsvd' and 'dsvd' require either U and s (standard-
% form regularization) or U and sm (general-form regularization), while
% 'mtvsd' requires U and s as well as L and V.
%
% If any output arguments are specified, then the corner of the L-curve
% is identified and the corresponding reg. parameter reg_corner is
% returned.  Use routine l_corner if an upper bound on eta is required.
