GINPUT: gets points mouse clicks on the screen\n\

[x,y]= ginput(axis)\n\
 x -> x coordinates of the points\n\
 y -> y coordinates of the points\n\
\n\
 axis -> if specified then the first 2 (or 4) clicks\n\
      must be on the appropriate axes. x and y (or just x\n\
      if only 2 points specified ) will then be normalised.\n\
\n\
for example: x=ginput([1 10]) \n\
   the first two clicks should correspond to x=1 and x=10 \n\
   subsequent clicks will then be normalized to graph units.  \n\
\n\
for example: [x,y]=ginput; \n\
   gives x and y in screen pixel units (upper left = 0,0 ) \n\
