Actually, no (regarding memory lane :-). I'm helping a friend to
translate some of my old routines to python so he can use them in his
I'm still using fortran84, and mean to continue doing so as long as
something better doesn't come along.

But as I said, got a job that't got to be done, so I'm trying to
figure out how to do array operations as easily as possible in python,
which are necessary for all my calculations.
