3D Bresenham's line generation 1.0 Description 

Description: This program will generate the coordinates of a 3D Bresenham's raster line between two given points.
A very useful application of this algorithm can be found in the implementation of Fischer's Bresenham interpolation method in my another program that can rotate three dimensional image volume with an affine matrix: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fil...?objectId=21080
Usage: [X Y Z] = bresenham_line3d(P1, P2);
P1  vector for Point1, where P1 = [x1 y1 z1]
P2  vector for Point2, where P2 = [x2 y2 z2]
precision (optional)  Although according to Bresenham's line algorithm, point coordinates x1 y1 z1 and x2 y2 z2 should be integer numbers, this program extends its limit to all real numbers. If any of them are floating numbers, you should specify how many digits of decimal that you would like to preserve. Be aware that the length of output X Y Z coordinates will increase in 10 times for each decimal digit that you want to preserve. By default, the precision is 0, which means that they will be rounded to the nearest integer.
X  a set of x coordinates on Bresenham's line
Y  a set of y coordinates on Bresenham's line
Z  a set of z coordinates on Bresenham's line
Therefore, all points in XYZ set (i.e. P(i) = [X(i) Y(i) Z(i)]) will constitute the Bresenham's line between P1 and P1.
Example:
P1 = [12 37 6]; P2 = [46 3 35]; [X Y Z] = bresenham_line3d(P1, P2); figure; plot3(X,Y,Z,'s','markerface','b');
