I'll be even more tangent. Those interested in Ox, see 


Cheers, Francisco.

This is a tangent to your question.

The economist Jurgen Doornik has written a language called Ox:
It obviously caters to econometricians. The unix version is free.

I did use it at one time before R was really rolling. I used it for MLE
because I think at that time there was no nlm() routine in R yet!  Ox
seemed fine though had no graphics.

Anyway I am mentioning this in case Ox is similar to Gauss. I know that Ox
is C-like, maybe Gauss is too, and so maybe not too hard to port Gauss
progs to Ox.
