I forgot to mention, function calls in Fortran, C or C++ seem to kill efficiency,
whereas writing in C++ with data hiding requires (normally) function calls
to access data.  The requirement that Ed Hill described, that an STL vector must
have contiguous memory is wonderful, since it allows the use of
Fortran / Assembler-like code to do the numerical work while using C++
for pre- and post- processing.
