MOGUL

The user community has been contributing Mozart packages through MOGUL: the [MOzart Global User Library]. This is a good place to look, if you need more elaborate functionality not already provided through Mozart's standard libraries. If you develop an interesting package, you should consider contributing it to MOGUL.
