This is the wiki for histoRicalg, an effort to document historical numerical algorithms and provide reference implementations. The primary focus of this project is providing updated code references written in the R programming language. The long term goal is to host the transfer and preservation of knowledge from older to younger workers.
A first step to providing ideas and support for this effort is the establishment of
a working group to propose, prioritize and select tasks which should be addressed.
All interested workers, whether from R or other projects, are invited to join. Please
contact nashjc at uottawa.ca. Later we will likely establish a registration form.
The page Identified-Issues will list and link issues that have been recognized. Some may have been resolved, documented or otherwise dealt with. Please note the Status: tags.
Fortran files in ...R-3.5.0/src/library/stats/src
The following is an edited listing of the files of type ".f" in the src path,
with the first element of the line the size in bytes. The large files, particularly portsrc.f which contains the NL2SOL code, are likely
to need better documentation and testing.
