Mark James of the Basser Dept. of Computer Science,
University of Sydney, Australia asked the following:

Does anyone know of a function that calculates the derivative
of a function (that can't be differentiated symbolically) at
a given point by numerical means?

Three methods of numerical differentiation are illustrated
and examples given in Chapter 6. Numerical Differentiation
Algorithm 6.1 Differentiation Using Limits
Algorithm 6.2 Differentiation Using Extrapolation
Algorithm 6.3 Differentiation Based on n+1 Nodes
They can be found in:

NUMERICAL METHODS: Mathematica Notebooks
