NAME: lcfunf PURPOSE: Compute a lightcurve function independent variables. DESCRIPTION: This is to be used in cases where you already know the fundamental period. The input independent variable is assumed to be reduced to phase of a fundamental period already. The integer part of the number is not used by the function. CATEGORY: Mathematical CALLING SEQUENCE: ans = lcfunf(x,m) INPUTS: x - independent variable (longitude, between 0 and 360) m - order of fit (see lcfun.pro) OPTIONAL INPUT PARAMETERS: PHANG - phase angle of each observation, will be saved to common, if not provided will use the last values saved to common block. Angle is in degrees. KEYWORD INPUT PARAMETERS: OUTPUTS: return value - 2-d array with all the independent variables computed. This is normally used to setup a svdfit or similar operation. KEYWORD OUTPUT PARAMETERS: COMMON BLOCKS: lc_com - one variable, phang, that is used to save the phase angle from one call to the next in case of calling the lcfun or lcfunf from a canned routine that cannot be taught to pass the extra independent variable.
