Dear Mr. Olaf Till,

I have uploaded the package to Github, so you can check it. 

Although this package may be used standalone, it provides common
functions needed by other packages. Those I want to contribute step by
step. The main purpose of those packages is, to provide tools for pre-
and post-processing of general flexible bodies in MBDyn (www.mbdyn.org)
. There is a lot of functionality in those packages. For that reason, I
have decided to split the code into several packages. 

Best regards,
