## usage:  w = triang (n)
##
## Returns the filter coefficients of a triangular window of length n.
## Unlike the bartlett window, triang does not go to zero at the edges
## of the window.  For odd n, triang(n) is equal to bartlett(n+2) except
## for the zeros at the edges of the window.

## 2001-04-07  Paul Kienzle
## * return column vector like other window functions.
## 2002-04-22  Paul Kienzle
## * peak value of 1 at 0 for even n
