  • Nicolas Devillard's conversion into C of F. Murtagh's Fortran programs (gzipped tar file). From Nicolas: "Let us say that this is a pre-alpha version for now. it was at some point stand-alone, then integrated into a larger package that does not exist anymore, then made stand-alone again. It compiles and runs but... Caveat emptor. I hope to find the time to put something nicer together later on."
