%  area = gquad6(fun,xlow,xhigh,mparts)
%  This function determines the area under an externally
%  defined function fun(x) between limits xlow and xhigh. The
%  numerical integration is performed using a composite gauss
%  integration rule.  The whole interval is divided into mparts
%  subintervals and the integration over each subinterval
%  is done with a six point Gauss formula which involves base
%  points bp and weight factors wf.  The normalized interval
%  of integration for the bp and wf constants is -1 to +1.  the
%  algorithm is structured in terms of a parameter mquad = 6 which
%  can be changed along with bp and wf to accommodate a different
%  order formula.  The composite algorithm is described by the
%  following summation relation
%  x=b                     j=n k=m
%  integral( f(x)*dx ) = d1*sum sum( wf(j)*fun(a1+d*k+d1*bp(j)) )
%  x=a                     j=1 k=1
%        where d = (b-a)/m, d1 = d/2, a1 = a-d1,
%              m = mparts, and n = nquad.
