F44:  Segmented Upper Hull Continuum                    Alias = suh
This program derives a continuum by draping line segments over the
top of the spectrum.  The user can remove the spectrum and then
drape line segments into the remaining absorption features.  The
iteration level can continue until the continuum matches the entire
spectrum.  The method is described in detail in:
