function inurbs = nrbdegelev(nurbs, ntimes)
% 
% NRBDEGELEV: Elevate the degree of the NURBS curve or surface.
% 
% Calling Sequence:
% 
%   ecrv = nrbdegelev(crv,utimes);
%   esrf = nrbdegelev(srf,{utimes,vtimes});
% 
% Parameters:
% 
%   crv           : NURBS curve, see nrbmak.
% 
%   srf           : NURBS surface, see nrbmak.
% 
%   utimes  : Increase the degree along U direction utimes.
% 
%   vtimes  : Increase the degree along V direction vtimes.
% 
%   ecrv    : new NURBS structure for a curve with degree elevated.
% 
%   esrf        : new NURBS structure for a surface with degree elevated.
% 
% 
% Description:
% 
%   Degree elevates the NURBS curve or surface. This function uses the
%   B-Spline function bspdegelev, which interface to an internal 'C'
%   routine.
% 
% Examples:
% 
%   Increase the NURBS surface twice along the V direction.
%   esrf = nrbdegelev(srf, 0, 1);
