Hi Forest.

Thanks for your reply.

> Can you say more about why you need a C++ wrapper ?

My main thought was to make memory management simpler and safer
via the usual model where the constructor acquires resources and
the destructor frees them, thus making it difficult to leak memory
(at least through local variables).

I am no expert in numerical computation, but do have C++ experience
in another field (namely, symbolic computation).  I'm assisting a
numerical research project for their programming needs.  The project
leader expressed a desire to base the code on GSL; a web search led
me to another library called "eigen" (URL:
but that seems to be completely independent of GSL.

Thanks for any further help you may be able to give me.
John Abbott.
