   mnomialp: parameters to control the program, as pairs of lines
      first line: na,nc,ng,nt
      second line: pa,pc,pg,pt
        this may repeat.
      When ng=nt=0 and pg=pt=0, the binomial distribution is calculated.
      The mean (n*pa) and standard deviation (sqrt(n*pa*pc)) are given.

description
   This program calculates the multinomial distribution:
                                 (na+nc+ng+nt)!   na   nc   ng   nt
    p(na,nc,ng,nt|pa,pc,pg,pt) = -------------- pa   pc   pg   pt
                                 na!nc!ng!nt!
