% layout=cosmo_meeg_read_layout(fn)
%
% Inputs:
%   fn                  Filename of layout file, or a string containing the
%                       layout. In the latter case fn must contain at least
%                       one newline ('\n') character.
%                       A layout file is a text file with one line per
%                       sensor, with each line containing the following
%                       data separated by white-space:
%                       1) sensor number (integer)
%                       2) horizontal position (float)
%                       3) vertical position (float)
%                       4) width (float)
%                       5) height (float)
%                       6) label (string)
%
% Output:
%   layout              struct with fields containing data for N sensors:
%     .pos              Nx2 matrix with x and y position
%     .width            Nx1 vector
%     .height           Nx1 vector
%     .label            Nx1 cell string with channel labels
%
% Notes:
%   - whitespace is trimmed from the labels
%   - the sensor number is not used; the order of the sensors in layout is
%     the same as in the layout file
