ToExternal: A package for compilation of numeric Maple procedures.

Allan Wittkopf

A new package is being developed that can translate Maple procedures into 
C code and automatically compile and link them into Maple so that the
routines are available as simple Maple commands.  The intent is to be able
to use this as a drop-in replacement for evalhf - with some limitations.

I will briefly outline the project map - where we are, and short/long term 
plans for the project.

In addition, the performance advantages of the use of this package over 
evalhf will be demonstrated.
