   fitgauss: fit a gaussian distribution to a histogram

   fitgauss(histog: in, fitgaussp: in, gfit: 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.

   gfit:  Same format as histog, but a gaussian distribution that
      is a least squares fit to the histog data.

   fitgaussp:  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 fit over.

   output: messages to the user
