Concerning the algorithm (only):
in Joshua answer, you have might have seen that solve is a wrapper to
lapack routines *gesv (z* or d* depending on the input type).

http://www.netlib.org/lapack/complex16/zgesv.f
and
http://www.netlib.org/lapack/double/dgesv.f
mention a LU decomposition with partial pivoting and row interchanges.
