bipolar(M, lo, hi, contrast)
%BIPOLAR returns an M-by-3 matrix containing a blue-red colormap, in
%	in which red stands for positive, blue stands for negative, 
%	and white stands for 0.
%
%  Usage: cmap = bipolar(M, lo, hi, contrast);  or  cmap = bipolar;
%
%  cmap:  output M-by-3 matrix for BIPOLAR colormap.
%  M:	  number of shades in the colormap. By default, it is the
%	  same length as the current colormap.
%  lo:	  the lowest value to represent.
%  hi:	  the highest value to represent.
%
%  Inspired from the LORETA PASCAL program:
