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

Similar to the MATLAB routine comet3. It takes x, y, and z line data and creates a comet plot. The user can control the tail length, playback speed (frequency), and all the usual line parameters as a normal plot.

See function help for an example.

It is plotting juts one variable. Are there any option for plot multiple variable at one graph?
