Is the original code published in CACM available as a PDF
It isn't. Or at least I couldn't find it.
You're right. And the person, who needs to verify all this is me. I just
was trying to do it easy. Now I understand - it's impossible. Need to
write the whole program from scratch. By the way, I also have to use
another algorithm. The initial procedure builds quintic natural spline.
Semi-local smoothing spline would suit better to my task. But that's too
more as for this list, as for this off-topic thread...

The same function is available in FORTRAN at:
http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=357456.357465 -> 600.gz
These pages refer to the actual papers as .pdf files and to the
algorithms as .gz files, both downloadable.
The FORTRAN implementation doesn't seem to have the perplexing line in
it at all (if present it would be around line 296 of the FORTRAN). I
suspect that the line is a typo, and should read:
or some such thing. It appears to be initialization for the following
lines, which are:
FOR I:=N STEP -1 UNTIL N1 DO
The FORTRAN takes advantage of the fact that (if my rusty FORTRAN is
correct) in FORTRAN arrays are initialized to 0.0 by the run time
system, so the initialization is not necessary. To verify all this
someone will have to take a careful look at the original math in
the .pdf files.
(Fun, but *really* OT.)
