A package for automatically generating efficient (FORTRAN) code for calculating Jacobians and Hessians is presented. It is meant as an extension to the symbolic-numeric interface of REDUCE. GENTRAN and the code optimizer prove to be a powerful combination. GENTRAN, a code GENeration and TRANslation package, is both used for translating Lisp code into FORTRAN and for template processing. The code optimizer is used for locally optimizing the generated code.
