 Log Message:
 Update to Newmat11
 Contributed by Kamel Derouiche via PR pkg/43741
 Changes in this version:
 It works with Borland Builder version 6, 8;
 Microsoft Visual C++ 6,7,8; Open Watcom 1.7a;
 Gnu version 3, 4 and Intel for Windows & Linux compilers 9, 10.
 Options and work-arounds for older compilers are being removed.
 You can enter values from an integer array with statements like
   Matrix A(3,2); int a[] = { 11,12,21,22,31,33 };  A << a;
 There is a new matrix type SquareMatrix. You can use this where
 you know a matrix is square. The only place where the information
 that a matrix is used is in the Kronecker product KP(A,B).
 If A is band and B is any square matrix type (i.e. type SquareMatrix
 or band, triangular, symmetric or diagonal) the result is band.
 If B is type Matrix then the result is of type Matrix.
 Apart from this it may be worth using the SquareMatrix type to
 improve readability of a program and to make sure that a matrix
 that is intended to be square really is square.
 There is a new routine for carrying out cross products of
 ColumnVectors or RowVectors of length 3 and new routines for
 updating a triangular matrix derived from a Cholesky decomposition.
 Interfacing with old C functions involving one and two
 dimensional arrays is simplified.
 Additional QR functions, extend_orthogonal function.
 Lower-case versions of functions.
 You can use the manipulators scientific and fixed in the matrix
 output expressions.
