Re: unwrap modulo 2pi

In the following bit of code the measured phase P is unwrapped onto
This is done by doing a 2nd order extrapolation of the three previous
points.  It works when the jumps are not too extreme.

;Correct Phi and PhiOne for 2Pi jumps. The calculated Phi is compared to
;the experimentally obtained Phi. Extrapolation with least squares fit.
FOR i=3,(NPhi-1) DO BEGIN
 Njumps=NINT((CALCphi(i)-P(i))/(2*!DPi), /Long)
