StackPlot(varargin)
function h = StackPlot(varargin)

% StackPlot -- Plot of stacked curves.
%  StackPlot(x, y, 'theColor', ...) plots the columns
%   of y(x) adjacent to each other, with a small margin.
%   The syntax is exactly the same as for "plot()".  The
%   "UserData" property of each line contains its column-
%   number and the additive-offset from the original value
%   of the column.
%  StackPlot(m, n, 'theColor') demonstrates itself with a
%   random array of size [m+1 n].  The size defaults to
%   [20 5].
