% function [H]=textLoc('string',location[,parameter,value,...])
%
% Puts string onto the current axes with location similar to legend locations.
% Passes all parameter, value pairs to text. textLoc works with semilog and
% loglog plots.
%
% H is the handle from the text command after modifications by textLoc.
%
% location can also be a 1x2 cell array containing {location,buffer} where
% buffer is a spacing buffer (in normalized units) for distance from the axes.
% buffer default is 1/50
%
% location can be any of:
% 'North' inside plot box near top
% 'South' inside bottom
% 'East' inside right
% 'West' inside left
% 'Center' centered on plot
% 'NorthEast' inside top right (default)
% 'NorthWest' inside top left
% 'SouthEast' inside bottom right
% 'SouthWest' inside bottom left
% 'NorthOutside' outside plot box near top
% 'SouthOutside' outside bottom
% 'EastOutside' outside right
% 'WestOutside' outside left
% 'NorthEastOutside' outside top right
% 'NorthWestOutside' outside top left
% 'SouthEastOutside' outside bottom right
% 'SouthWestOutside' outside bottom left
% 'NorthEastOutsideAbove' outside top right (above)
% 'NorthWestOutsideAbove' outside top left (above)
% 'SouthEastOutsideBelow' outside bottom right (below)
% 'SouthWestOutsideBelow' outside bottom left (below)
% 'Random' Random placement inside axes
% or
% 1 = Upper right-hand corner (default)
% 2 = Upper left-hand corner
% 3 = Lower left-hand corner
% 4 = Lower right-hand corner
% -1 = To the right of the plot
%
% EXAMPLES:
% figure(1); x=0:.1:10; y=sin(x); plot(x,y);
% t=textLoc('North','North')
% t=textLoc('southeastoutside',{'southeastoutside',1/20},'rotation',90)
% t=textLoc('SouthEast',4)
% t=textLoc('West',{'west',.1})
% t=textLoc('northwest',{2,.3},'Color','red')
% t=textLoc({'\downarrow','south'},'south')
% t=textLoc('SWRot',{3},'rotation',45)
% t=textLoc('NEOAbove',{'NorthEastOutsideAbove',0},'FontSize',8)
% t=textLoc('textLoc','center','edgecolor','black','fontsize',20)
