Actually, your code is directly accessible from Ada, so rewriting is not
necessary.  Ada95 has a direct interface to Fortran (even array subscripting)
so using existing Fortran code is no problem.  Ada's Numerics annex is
designed to answer just the types of questions you have.  You will have to
find a compiler that supports it, like GNAT, for your platform.  But you'd
probably have to look for a C++ compiler too.

p.s.  Sorry, I don't have any experience to pass on about interfacing to
Fortran, I just noticed nobody else responded with it.
