Math::GSL 0.16 - More features and more rigorous tests

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)
I just pushed Math::GSL 0.16 to CPAN, it should be showing up here Real Soon Now, depending on how much traffic the dump trucks hit on the intertubes

  • Fixed RT#40947: configure_requires ExtUtils::PkgConfig bug
  • Operator overloading for addition, multiplication and subtraction on Matrix objects (Thierry)
  • Fix an include bug in Histogram2D which caused the build to fail (Thierry)
  • Added reverse() and swap() methods to VectorComplex objects with tests and docs
  • as_list() and get() now work on VectorComplex objects
    • as_list() returns a list of Math::Complex objects
    • get() returns a list of Math::GSL::Complex objects
  • Math::GSL::Test::ok_status() now takes an optional message argument
  • Added KNOWN_BUGS
  • Added Math::GSL::Test::is_status_ok()
  • New subsytems: VectorComplex and MatrixComplex
  • Operator overloading for addition and subtraction with vectors
  • Added example: examples/matrix/nonsymmetric_eigen
    • Shows how to find the eigenvalues of a nonsymmetric matrix
  • Added copy() method to vectors
  • Improved Vector docs
  • Sped up vector dot products by 15x using BLAS function gsl_blas_ddot
    • NOTE: using gsl_blas_ddot($x->raw,$y->raw) directly is still about 10 times faster than $x * $y due to error checking and function call overhead
  • Separated POD and Perl code out of SWIG interface files, yay for proper syntax highlighting
  • Added stub test files for Heapsort, IEEEUtils, Multimin, Siman, Wavelet2D
  • All test files now keep track of how many tests should run
