Computes the least squares fit of the data, Programming Languages

Your solution to the problem should be housed within a while loop, which allows the grader to test your solution repeatedly without having to re-execute the script, as shown in class. You should first display the purpose of the program, and then you should prompt the user if he/she wishes to run the code. If the user responses 'y' or 'Y', you should then run the actual problem solution (whatever that entails). After running your solution, you should prompt the user if he/she wishes to run it again, and if so, do so. Otherwise, exit the program with a closing goodbye statement.

In this final project you will implement a user-defined matlab function named lsquares with the following "prototype":

function [m,b,e,s,r] = lsquares(x,y)

which computes the least squares regression line fit to the data whose coordinates are in the arrays x and y. The output arguments m and b are always computed and returned, but the user has the option to get e,s and r, if he/she so desires. If these outputs are not requested, your code in your function should NOT compute them.

You will code up the function lsquares in the .m file "lsquares.m", and also a driver program which performs the following steps (as long as the user wants to do so):

1) Prompt the user for a plain text data file, which has 4 columns of data: the first column is string data, the remaining 3 are numeric.

2) Read the second, third, and fourth columns into the variables x,y,and y_true, respectively.

3) Prompts the user for whether he/she wants to see the correlation coefficient r.

4) Computes the least squares fit of the data. You are to obtain r only if the user so desired. On the same plot, plot the x vs. y data with red stars, x vs. the least squares fit with solid blue line, and x vs. y_true with a solid green line. You should output to the user the resulting slope, intercept, and r value (only if the user requested that piece of information).

EXTRA CREDIT: In addition to using your function, lsquares, to compute the least squares fit, use the built-in matlab function polyfit to find the coefficients m and b. Display matlab's m and b values and compare them to yours.
