pvcalc Process the bins of an FFT chain

chain = chain.pvcalc(numframes, func, frombin, tobin, zeroothers)

pvcalc applies function func to the frequency-domain data of an FFT chain. func should be a function that takes two arrays as inputs (magnitude, and phase) and returns a resulting pair of arrays [magnitude, phase].

frombin, tobin, and zeroothers are optional arguments which limit the processing to a specified integer range of FFT bins. If zeroothers is set to 1 then bins outside of the range being processed are silenced.

See pvcollect for discussion of efficiency considerations. See also pvcalc2, UnpackFFT.

//[mags.differentiate, phases.differentiate]; // Differentiate along frequency axis
