file: README for NUMAL.tar date: 100605 by : Jan Kok ========================= Contents of NUMAL.tar --------------------- The set of plaintext ASCII files numalinx.txt newnumal5p1.txt newnumal5p2.txt newnumal5p3.txt together contains an update of the index and manual of the library NUMAL of Algol 60 procedures in numerical mathematics as published in the Mathematical Centre publication: P.W. Hemker (ed.): NUMAL. Numerical Procedures in ALGOL 60. 7 volumes. MC Syllabus 47, Mathematical Centre, Amsterdam. Availability of the book version in the CWI publications repository: the repository description of the NUMAL index has URL http://repository.cwi.nl/search/fullrecord.php?publnr=12897 It contains links to the other volumes and to the PDF files with scanned images of the 7 volumes. This update differs from the book version in the following respects: 1. The sources (of procedures and examples) have been adapted to a newer version of the compiler (Algol 60 version 5) and runtime system then available on Control Data mainframes. 2. The file numalinx.txt only contains a new, trimmed introduction and the systematic index. The original introduction also describing the history of the NUMAL development, and the KWIC index are available in the printed version, volume 1. 3. Errors have been corrected. 4. First-column symbols of all lines are printer control characters. See the introduction of the Index (file numalinx.txt) for details.
