Specifically, CForm will not expand built-in functions like FindRoot. But I have used CForm to generate the blob of code needed to perform vector and matrix computations in embedded processors too small and too odd for Mathematica to run on, and/or where Mathematica is itself far too slow. The real reason to use CForm here was to cut down on coding errors in a messy bit of coordinate-transform code. Joe Gwinn
