## usage:  beta_rnd (a, b [, r, c])
##
## beta_rnd (a, b) returns a matrix of random samples from the Beta
## distribution with parameters a and b.  The size of the matrix is the
## common size of a and b.
##
## beta_rnd (a, b, r, c) returns an r by c matrix of random samples from
## the Beta distribution with parameters a and b.  Both a and b must be
## scalar or of size r by c.
