This program calculates the 1/N-octave-band center and edge frequencies from min_f to max_f (Hz). The exact and nominal frequencies are output in arrays. The nominal frequencies are also output in a cell of string of characters for plotting purposes.
This program satisfies the frequency band requires established in ANSI S1.6 and ANSI S1.11.
