clip_nii(nii, opt)
%  CLIP_NII: Clip the NIfTI volume from any of the 6 sides
%
%  Usage:	nii = clip_nii(nii, [option])
%
%  Inputs:
%
%  nii - NIfTI volume.
%
%  option - struct instructing how many voxel to be cut from which side.
%
%	option.cut_from_L = ( number of voxel )
%	option.cut_from_R = ( number of voxel )
%	option.cut_from_P = ( number of voxel )
%	option.cut_from_A = ( number of voxel )
%	option.cut_from_I = ( number of voxel )
%	option.cut_from_S = ( number of voxel )
%
%	Options description in detail:
%	==============================
%
%	cut_from_L: Number of voxels from Left side will be clipped.
%
%	cut_from_R: Number of voxels from Right side will be clipped.
%
%	cut_from_P: Number of voxels from Posterior side will be clipped.
%
%	cut_from_A: Number of voxels from Anterior side will be clipped.
%
%	cut_from_I: Number of voxels from Inferior side will be clipped.
%
%	cut_from_S: Number of voxels from Superior side will be clipped.
%
%  NIfTI data format can be found on: http://nifti.nimh.nih.gov
