A version of the NR code is freely available on the net as a zip file
complete with the code and the examples.  The code matches the book
copyrighted 1986/1989, I don't know if there is a later edition.. I
think the readme in the zip file calls this an older version released
as shareware....

The code is not particulary free but it seems a bit hazy.  The
colection is not free.  But, for example, I'm working on a problem
using sigular value decomposition right now and the SVDCMP.PAS
routine in NR is apparently a translation of free-er EISPACK

I would be cautious of GPL/LGPL units that that use NR code.  It's
not clear that that's legal...
