% solve_chol - solve linear equations from the Cholesky factorization.
% Solve A*X = B for X, where A is square, symmetric, positive definite. The
% input to the function is R the Cholesky decomposition of A and the matrix B.
% Example: X = solve_chol(chol(A),B);
% NOTE: The program code is written in the C language for efficiency and is
% contained in the file solve_chol.c, and should be compiled using matlabs mex
% facility. However, this file also contains a (less efficient) matlab
% implementation, supplied only as a help to people unfamiliar with mex. If
% the C code has been properly compiled and is avaiable, it automatically
% takes precendence over the matlab code in this file.
