##
## Extract the components of a piece-wise polynomial structure @var{pp}.
## These are as follows:
##
## @table @asis
## @item @var{x}
## Samples points.
## @item @var{p}
## Polynomial coefficients for points in sample interval. @code{@var{p}
## (@var{i}, :)} contains the coefficients for the polynomial over
## interval @var{i} ordered from highest to lowest. If @code{@var{d} >
## 1}, @code{@var{p} (@var{r}, @var{i}, :)} contains the coeffients for
## the r-th polynomial defined on interval @var{i}. However, this is
## stored as a 2-D array such that @code{@var{c} = reshape (@var{p} (:,
## @var{j}), @var{n}, @var{d})} gives @code{@var{c} (@var{i}, @var{r})}
## is the j-th coefficient of the r-th polynomial over the i-th interval.
## @item @var{n}
## Number of polynomial pieces.
## @item @var{k}
## Order of the polynomial plus 1.
## @item @var{d}
## Number of polynomials defined for each interval.
