[Help-gsl] Passing data to multidim minimization routines

I'm hoping that someone on this discussion list can point me in the right 
direction with an issue I am having using the multidimensional minimization 
routines.  My objective function is a function of both parameters for which I 
need to find optimizing values, as well as "data" that does not change (similar 
to maximum likelihood estimation for a dataset).  The gsl documentation is 
clear about how to write the objective and gradient functions when the only 
parameters are those that are modified by the optimization algorithm, but I 
cannot find a reference or example about how to pass additional parameters or 
data to that function through the optimizer.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Best wishes,
