a package for the computation of nonlinear lifting line for wings for Octave.

This package allows efficient computation of nonlinear aerodynamic properties of a wing. It employs 2D section data to build a 3D potential vortex model of the flow. It uses a robust Euler-Newton method to track the change of flow vorticity quantities as the angle of attack progresses.
