Create new m-file(s) with headers already there, or add headers to existing m-file(s)
Updated 3 Nov 2008

No License

This function will create a new m-file with the headers already there, automatically filling out the current date, Matlab version, file name (if specified), and Author (in Windows, pulls the current Windows user). If given no input, a new untitled document will appear with the header filled in. If given a filename that doesn't exist, the file is created. If given a filename that already exists, user is prompted to "Add Headers", "Add Headers to All", or "Skip File". Input filename(s) can be char or cell string.
