This routine calculates: significant wave height, Hmax, Hrms, H1/2, H1/10, H/100, significant wave period, Taverage, T1/2, T1/10, T1/100.

0. Syntax:
Only run StaWave.m

1. Inputs:
Data of wave height and period must be in a .txt file, in which the first column has wave heights and the second column corresponds to wave periods.

2. Output :
Routine creates two files in which send next results:
Hw.txt: maximum wave height
average wave height
rms wave height
1/2 wave height
significant wave height
1/10 wave height
1/100 wave height
Pw.txt: maximum wave period
average wave period
1/2 wave period
significant wave period
1/10 wave period
1/100 wave period
4. Notes
The file datwaves.txt is the input file of this routine.
