figuremaker helps users generate publication quality graphics from
matlab. This code was modified from the exportfig function, available
This function is nice in that the font sizes on the exported figure
will agree with the font size of the document the figure is placed

Exportfig was modified to allow rgb color in the exported figure.
Also, export of pdf file format is implemented with help from Oliver

The file format of the output is automatically chosen from the
filename, for example

>> exportfig('filename.pdf')

exports the current figure into pdf format.
