Calculates resultant matrix when the OPERATOR is applied to all combinations of the elements of vector A and the elements of vector B e.g. the outer product of A and B is outerop(A,B,'*'), the outer sum of A and B is outerop(A,B,'+')
If OPERATOR is omitted '+' is assumed
This function is equivalent to the APL language's circle.dot operation. e.g. in APL Ao.*B is the outer product of A and B % and Ao.+B is the outer sum.
Ideally, it would work on matrices but in practice
I've only ever needed to use it with vectors.

Removed comaptibility with pre R14 releases becuase TMW have changed the way they reort version numbers. Made + the default operation.
