Comments on Coding

The original source code for the book Computer Methods for Mathematical Computations by Forsythe, Malcolm and Moler was developed prior to the release of the Fortran 77 standard. The following notes summarize the changes made to the original pre-Fortran 77 library to make it into modern Fortran.

One great value of the original code was that the original authors put no restrictions on the distribution of the code and it may be downloaded from Netlib. I declare that all of my added value to the library is contributed to the public domain.
