       Control  the Henon system, x(t+1) = A - x(t)^2 + B * x(t -
       1), with the OGY control law for arbitrary  choices  of  A
       and  B.   The control law is analytically calculated based
       on the system parameters.  The user can  select  times  in
       which control is turned on and off so that time-to-control
       and transients can be observed.  Gaussian noise  can  also
       be  injected  into the system.  The control timing options
       are constrained to obey  (0  <=  on1  <=  off  <=  on2  <=


       -points integer
              The length of the time series.

       -on1 integer
              Where to turn control on.

       -off integer
              Where to turn control off.

       -on2 integer
              Where to turn control on again.

       -skip integer
              Amount to skip initially.

       -seed integer
              Random seed.

       -plimit double
              Largest allowed size for p.

       -A double
              Value of the A parameter.

       -B double
              Value of the B parameter.

       -gauss double
              Magnitude of Gaussian noise.


       Few  sanity  checks are performed to make sure that any of
       the options make sense.
