Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

As of Matlab 2018a, legend() now supports columns, so function will no longer be maintained: https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/legend.html#d117e809522

Updated 9/8/16: Added new legend positions (e.g. northeastoutside) and better positioning.
usage:
numlines = 5;
r = rand(10,numlines);
plot(r);
columnlegend(2, cellstr(num2str([1:numlines]')), 'location', 'northeastoutside');

PRINTING: If you want to print the figure, you'll have to use a command line printer (e.g. export_fig) as the File->Print option embedded in the figure resets the figure properties including the legend
