> I've also written a monad and transformer for doing monte carlo  
> computations that uses gsl-random internally.  Here is that package:
> http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/monte-carlo
> For a quick tutorial in the latter package, see my blog:

> One thing you may need to watch out for is that gsl-random needs to link

> "gsl-random.cabal" to get things to work correctly.  To use the cblas 
> that comes with the gsl, change "cblas" to "gslcblas".  To use ATLAS, 
> change "cblas" to "cblas atlas".

kzm: My program contains a bug. How ungrateful, after all I've done for it.
