## Example

Split an image into RGB channels and create one image with each of these channels:
%Read image
figure(1);
imshowcv(img);

[blue, green, red] = splitcv(img);

figure(2);
imshowcv(blue);

figure(3);
imshowcv(red);

figure(4);
imshowcv(green);
Split an image into RGB channels and display only the red one:
cvhandle = imreadcv('bird2.jpg');
[r, g, b] = splitcv(cvhandle);
imshowcv(r);
