I am currently working on a fourth order Runge-Kutta routine. There is 
one included with the standard packages but it isn't very good in my opinion.

If you would like I will post it when I am finished. Please reply 
directly to my e-mail instaed of the list. I don;t want to flood the list 
with unneeded messages.

I will also have to test it for complex functions. Write to me and I will 
get it finished up.
