I intended to fix the NR problem personally, but since this spring's
schedule is shaping up to be a real bear, I'll let others know what I
had in mind.

A while back I started trying to compile a replacement for NR.  For
each chapter in the book, I started hunting equivalent routines (that
indexed from zero!!!!!!!!!!) that were freely distributable.

Before I spent too much time on it, I ran across two people at UCLA
that had the same general idea a long time before me. The principle
party is Ajay Shah, who deserves a lot of credit.  The package, "AnS
C," (Ajay -n- Somebody else whose name escapes me.. maybe Sharon) will
be freely available once it is finished (if that hasn't happened
already). I had an early copy, and was quite impressed. Excellent
document.  I don't recall exactly which matrix manipulation routines
it had, but this is a possible source for replacement routines.

If some programmer is seriously interested in this, get in touch with
me and I'll try to track down the source.
