   smoothis: smooth a histogram

   smoothis(histog: in, smoothisp: in, smooth: out, output: out)

   histog:  the output of the genhis program, consisting of comment lines
      that begin with "*" and data lines that have pairs of bin position and
      number of items at that bin position.

   smooth:  Same format as histog, but smoothed according to the parameters.

   smoothisp:  parameters to control the program.  The file must contain the
      following parameters, one per line:

      parameterversion: The version number of the program.  This allows the
         user to be warned if an old parameter file is used.

      range (integer): The range to smooth over.

   output: messages to the user


   The smoothis program smooths a histogram.  If the smoothing range is 1,
   then no smoothing is done.  If smooting is 2 then every bin is added to
   the previous bin and averaged.  The result is in the second bin position
   so that bin locations are on the high end.
