Hi Wally,

I've done exactly this in Matlab. After you get the first derivative you can
do the following (in Matlab commented code) to find the maximum and minimum
//fx1 is a vector with the y values of the spline derivative.
extrema = find(diff(fx1)~=0); // it will detect where the first derivative
changes its signal. The accuracy depends on the fx1 range and length.

Now, I'm trying to translate this code to C using gsl. I need a little help
to compute the derivative. Could you send me a little piece of code showing
how to do it?

Thank you very much,
Alex Lopes Pereira
