[Pharo-project] Object Oriented Implementation of Numerical Methods" under the MIT license

That is wonderful news!

Didier,  There is a natural question that arises: what are the performance implications of Smalltalk or Java?  Why not C with a Smalltalk wrapper?  I have not tried number crunching with Cog or NativeBoost doing some of the expensive lifting, but absent those advantages, the benefit from coding tight loops in C has been nothing short of eerie.  I have never tried Java for it.  If there is a speed boost to be had, would a port offend you?  I am a pragmatist, so it would begin one function at a time, chosen by the type of work I do and driven by when the machine grunts.

Thanks,

Bill
