   I need to implement a singular value decomposition for a 
large matrix.  The included function SingularValues is 
too slow for a matrix of around 500x500.  I am considering
a link to either C, Fortran or MatLab, but the link tools 
seem not to be in place.  

   In theory. using C should be the easiest, but the template 
compiler (correspondingto mcc or mprep) is not available on 
Win95.  I have found sample code on Mathsource for Fortran and 
MatLab, but these only work on other platforms, 

   Can someone make a recommendation how best to implement
this?  Thanks very much.
