function [bcres, steplength, stepperiod] = bvpbcfun(xa, varargin)
% BVPBCFUN evaluates the residual of the boundary condition for the
% boundary value problem solver, bvpsearch.
% For walksw2, there are five boundary conditions: four from the
% periodicity required after step-to-step transition, and one for
% the double support condition. There is one unknown bvp parameter,
% the step period T. This is separate from the walk object's "known"
% parameters structure parms.
% bcres = bvpbcfun(xa, xb, T, walk, walkparms) as used by bvp4c
% bcres = bvpbcfun(xa, xb, T, walk, walkparms) for
% multipoint problems.
% Alternative calls: bvpbcfun(walk [, sol]) takes a walk object with
% or without solution and returns the residual, as called by the user.
%
% [bcres, steplength, stepperiod] = bvpbcfun... also returns extra
% gait info.
% Note that xa and xb are expected to be column vectors. Also note that
% other walk models might have more than one unknown bvp parameter.
