Hello,
>From the manual:

  "If no real roots are found then x0 and x1 are not modified."

Isn't there a problem with this behaviour?
How is the programmer supposed to know if roots were not found, or if they 
were found but just happen to equal the initial values of x0 and x1?

Thanks for the help.
