* Name:
* palPrec
* Purpose:
* Form the matrix of precession between two epochs (IAU 2006)
* Language:
* Starlink ANSI C
* Type of Module:
* Library routine
* Invocation:
* palPrec( double ep0, double ep1, double rmatp[3][3] )
* Arguments:
* ep0 = double (Given)
* Beginning epoch
* ep1 = double (Given)
* Ending epoch
* rmatp = double[3][3] (Returned)
* Precession matrix
* Description:
* The IAU 2006 precession matrix from ep0 to ep1 is found and
* returned. The matrix is in the sense V(EP1) = RMATP * V(EP0).
* The epochs are TDB (loosely TT) Julian epochs.
*
* Though the matrix method itself is rigorous, the precession
* angles are expressed through canonical polynomials which are
* valid only for a limited time span of a few hundred years around
* the current epoch.
* Authors:
* PTW: Pat Wallace (STFC)
