Hi Austin,

Thanks for the putting the original code.

This was the code I referred to ( though I should have put this up
myself). It seems to me that the global macros like $ML_Y1, theta1,etc
are not defined here which led me to think a part of the code is
missing maybe. Or could be that I am going horribly wrong somewhere.
