function s=slope(x,y,xnot)  % s=slope(x,y,xnot) % % compute the slope of the curve given by x,y at the point xnot. If the curve % is multivalued, then multiple s's will be returned. If the curve is a polygon, then % it must have its first and last points explicitly equal. The curve is assumed  % piecewise linear. If xnot is exactly equal to a point in x, then the slope  % returned is the average of the segments before and after xnot. % % NOTE: It is illegal for you to use this software for a purpose other % than non-profit education or research UNLESS you are employed by a CREWES % Project sponsor.
