User-Supplied Jacobian in NDSolve

Dear Mathgroup,

  I am using compiled functions (values computed with Compile or
Mathlink) and so I wrap my functions to ensure only numerical values
are supplied to these functions:


Therefore, if NDSolve could derive a symbolic Jacobian, then I assume
that NDSolve can not elucidate it for f[x_Real] since the functions are

I guess I have two questions:

1) Does NDSolve use an analytic Jacobian an any case
2) Is it possible to supply a User-Defined Jacobian to NDSolve

I think that it can be done in general, given experience with GSL, LSODA,=

Many thanks for your advice,
