R package "gsl" is now on CRAN. This is a wrapper for
the special functions of the Gnu Scientific Library (GSL). Functions include
elliptic integrals, Airy functions, hypergeometric functions, and so on.
Most functions optionally return error estimates.
This library is a little odd in that documentation is limited to a
pointer to the GSL reference
manual, and occasional re-productions of tables and figures from
Abramowitz and Stegun.
It passes R CMD check under Fedora Linux, and MacOSX 10.3 if the GSL
(version 1.5) is installed in the default locations.
A windows version is available at http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/2.0.0/
