CppAD: C++ algorithmic differentiation by operator overloading.
I would like to propose the new cygwin package CppAD and I would like to
be the maintainer of this package.
I am the project manager for CppAD and you can find out information about
it and its development at
I have placed the package for review at the web address
which contains the files
I think that that these files are greatly improved with respect to my
[ITP] of CppAD; see
This package is not currently included in a major Linux distribution,
hence it requires five positive votes from package maintainers in order
to be accepted.
Thank you in advance for you time in considering this package.
# To test the source or binary distribution, copy the source
# to a temporary directory and execute the commands
# g++ get_started.cpp -o get_started.exe
# the resulting output should be
# y'(3) computed by CppAD = 142
# Requires a standard compliant C++ compiler; e.g., gcc-g++.
