TOMS179 is a MATLAB library which implements ACM TOMS algorithm 179, for evaluating the modified Beta function.
While the text of many ACM TOMS algorithms is available online through ACM: http://www.acm.org/pubs/calgo or NETLIB: http://www.netlib.org/toms/index.html, many of the early algorithms are not available. This is one of them. I typed it in.
The original algorithm was published in the Algol language. Shortly therafter, a distinct FORTRAN77 algorithm was published as a "remark" to the original algorithm. A few modifications to the FORTRAN77 program were proposed in a subsequent "remark".
