Get the path to the CalData folder.

If “forceDemo” is true (false by default), then force use of
PsychCalDemoData. Otherwise return location of PsychCalLocalData
if it exists, and PsychCalDemoData if it PsychCalLocalData does
not exist.

If calFileName is passed, it checks if the specified file exists
in the top level of the directory it located. If so, it returns
that directory. If not, it searches the first level subdirectories
of the top level directories and if the specfied file is in one of
them, returns that. Skips subdirs called ‘xOld’, ‘Plots’, and those
that begin with ‘.’.

calFileName can either have .mat postpended or not.

If calDir is passed as a string, that is used as the directory, with
the subdir searching as above.
