FIR filter design using the window method.
From the given frequencies freq and corresponding gains gain, this function constructs an FIR filter with linear phase and (approximately) the given frequency response.
Parameters :  numtaps : int
freq : arraylike, 1D
gain : arraylike
nfreqs : int, optional
window : string or (string, float) or float, or None, optional
nyq : float
antisymmetric : bool


Returns :  taps : numpy 1D array of length numtaps

Notes
From the given set of frequencies and gains, the desired response is constructed in the frequency domain. The inverse FFT is applied to the desired response to create the associated convolution kernel, and the first numtaps coefficients of this kernel, scaled by window, are returned.
The FIR filter will have linear phase. The type of filter is determined by the value of ‘numtaps` and antisymmetric flag. There are four possible combinations:
 odd numtaps, antisymmetric is False, type I filter is produced
 even numtaps, antisymmetric is False, type II filter is produced
 odd numtaps, antisymmetric is True, type III filter is produced
 even numtaps, antisymmetric is True, type IV filter is produced
Magnitude response of all but type I filters are subjects to following constraints:
 type II – zero at the Nyquist frequency
 type III – zero at zero and Nyquist frequencies
 type IV – zero at zero frequency

Examples
A lowpass FIR filter with a response that is 1 on [0.0, 0.5], and that decreases linearly on [0.5, 1.0] from 1 to 0:
>>> taps = firwin2(150, [0.0, 0.5, 1.0], [1.0, 1.0, 0.0])
>>> print(taps[72:78])
