Re: [10GBT] Issues with solarsep_varlen7a.m
This matlab code has many options and switches and I'm not sure that I
can verify the integrity of all my corrections and publish the modified code
prior to the plenary meeting, next week. In any case, I am more partial to
the straight-forward MMSE pulse analysis code that we used and
published in the IEEE 802.3ab task force since it results in a more
comparison of the merits of one approach over another.
