Yeah, that's the spirit behind Bayani ;-)

On the fitting algorithms ? If so, OK then.
I would like first to be sure that you know where to start.
Have you an experience with C/C++ ? CVS ? Or are you in a learning process ?
In either case, please have a look at the files:
These contain the definition/implementation that Bayani uses for the time
I suggest that, as an introductory exercise, you write a smallish C++ class
that fits linearly a set of data (there is no algorithm to implement, since
there is an analytical solution).
In a test program (independent from Bayani) you would create an object and fit
a small set of data :-) Don't take care of the errors that would be
associated with the data [therefore, the fit parameters will be given without
errors on them].
I hope this makes sense.
Please let me know as soon as possible if this suits you or not, and don't
hesitate to ask !
I know that if you are familiar with C++, this would look like a very childish
test ;-) It is necessary though, as it will be our basic template for the
complicated work that awaits us ;-)
Salam and please let me know quickly about your plans :)
