brent_original, a FORTRAN77 code which finds a zero or a local minimizer or a global minimizer of a scalar function of a scalar variable, by Richard Brent.
The methods do not require the use of derivatives, and do not assume that the function is differentiable.

brent_original is available in a FORTRAN77 version.
glomin, a Fortran77 code which finds a global minimum of a scalar function of a scalar argument, without the use of derivative information, by Richard Brent.
local_min, a Fortran77 code which finds a local minimum of a scalar function of a scalar variable, without the use of derivative information, by Richard Brent.
zero, a Fortran77 code which seeks a solution of a scalar nonlinear equation f(x) = 0, by Richard Brent.
