    Performs least squares fitting to a straight line, but can perform it over
    one particular dimension for a multi-dimensional data set. Acts like the
    built-in function LINFIT if DIMENSION is not set.



Calling Sequence

    Result = JBLINFIT(X, Y)


    X: Array containing the independent variable values.
    Y: Array containing the dependent variable values.

Keyword Parameters

    DIMENSION: If X and Y are multi-dimensional arrays, perform the fitting
              accross this dimension.
    CHISQR: Output variable containing the chi squared values.
    COVAR: Output variable containing the covariance matrix.
    MEASURE_ERRORS: Array containing the measurement errors in Y.
    PROB: Output variable containing the probability of obtaining a fit
              with at least this chi squared value.
    SIGMA: Output variable containing uncertainties in fit parameters.
    YFIT: Output variable containing the values of the dependent variable at
              the X locations, according to the fit.


    Returns the parameters of the linear fit. If X has dimensions [D1, D2, D3... DM],
    and DIMENSION=N, then Result has dimensions [2, D1...DN-1, DN+1...DM].
    Result[0,....] contains the constant term and Result[1,...] contains the slope.
