i found that for FIR filters, both firpm() (used to be called remez())
and firls() work pretty good for design. and also the Kaiser window
(together with fft()) works pretty good for the "windowing method" of
FIR design.

they should have a berchin() function along with prony() to design IIRs
in the signal processing toolbox.

i wonder what Ingle and Proakis would say about the STUPID FUCKING
requirement that all indices are positive (not ever zero, not ever
negative). how do they integrate that inflexible indexing convention
into the accepted and concise convention we use in DSP that has negative
and zero indices, both for samples and for FFT bins? and about the
latter, *what* do they tell the reader about the DC bin in the FFT? is
it X(1)? totally stupid, and you would think these authors would start
rattling Cleve's telephone and tell him how that unfixable indexing
convention makes it harder to integrate MATLAB with their DSP book.
