Price European or American spread options using Monte Carlo simulations

`Price = spreadbyls(RateSpec,StockSpec1,StockSpec2,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike,Corr)`

`Price = spreadbyls(___,Name,Value)`

```
[Price,Paths,Times,Z]
= spreadbyls(RateSpec,StockSpec1,StockSpec2,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike,Corr)
```

```
[Price,Paths,Times,Z]
= spreadbyls(___,Name,Value)
```

returns
the price of a European or American call or put spread option using
Monte Carlo simulations.`Price`

= spreadbyls(`RateSpec`

,`StockSpec1`

,`StockSpec2`

,`Settle`

,`Maturity`

,`OptSpec`

,`Strike`

,`Corr`

)

For American options, the Longstaff-Schwartz least squares method is used to calculate the early exercise premium.
