Similar to the well known colorbarf but more realistic.

There are two things missing in colorbar and colorbarf:
1. the colorbar ticks are scaled according to the size of each interval.
2. when color is saturated at the upper limit, or when is white, below the lower limit, a triangle is added. The triangle means "more/less than". Such information is not provided by the existing tools, colorbar and colorbarf.
See the examples.

Besides, there is a bug (?) with contourf: in some cases, even with the levels specified, one additional level is added and corrensponds to the sourrounding line! In such case, colorbarf adds one box for this fake level!


Updated 13-7-2007 by adding the option SCALE for linear/non linear scale
