% NONMAXSUPPTS - Non-maximal suppression for features/corners
%
% Non maxima suppression and thresholding for points generated by a feature
% or corner detector.
%
% Usage:   [r,c] = nonmaxsuppts(cim, radius, thresh, im)
%                                                    /
%                                                optional
%
%          [r,c, rsubp, csubp] = nonmaxsuppts(cim, radius, thresh, im)
%                                                             
% Arguments:
%            cim    - corner strength image.
%            radius - radius of region considered in non-maximal
%                     suppression. Typical values to use might
%                     be 1-3 pixels.
%            thresh - threshold.
%            im     - optional image data.  If this is supplied the
%                     thresholded corners are overlayed on this
%                     image. This can be useful for parameter tuning.
% Returns:
%            r      - row coordinates of corner points (integer valued).
%            c      - column coordinates of corner points.
%            rsubp  - If four return values are requested sub-pixel
%            csubp  - localization of feature points is attempted and
%                     returned as an additional set of floating point
%                     coords. Note that you may still want to use the integer
%                     valued coords to specify centres of correlation windows
%                     for feature matching.
