Thanks, but it's already done and tested. While looking, I did ignore
all C++ versions, since C++ matrices usually rely a lot on the C++
syntax. C++ libs seemed to be abundant.

Using a book as a guide is ok, but the Numerical Recipes books contain
explicit C or C++ code with a licence I do not think we could accept.
Numerical Recipes are commercial products. I recall seeing projects
immediately removing user contributions when realising the code is
copied from a Numerical Recipes book.

Might be interesting to see how your inversion compares to mine in
speed and precision, but I will leave that for someone else.
