Math-SymbolicX-Inline
=====================
This module is an extension to the Math::Symbolic module. A basic
familiarity with that module is required.
Math::SymbolicX::Inline allows easy creation of Perl functions from
symbolic expressions in the context of Math::Symbolic. That means
you can define arbitrary Math::Symbolic trees (including derivatives)
and let this module compile them to package subroutines.
There are relatively few syntax elements that aren't standard in
Math::Symbolic expressions, but those that exist are easier to
explain using examples. Thus, please refer to the discussion of
a simple example below which can be found in the manual page
of the module.
Simple, contrived example:
use Math::SymbolicX::Inline <<'HERE';
myfunction = partial_derivative( sin(x) * sin(x), x )
x (:=) arg0
HERE
print myfunction(3);
# prints the derivative of sin(x)**2 evaluated at x=3
INSTALLATION
To install this module type the following:
perl Build.PL
./Build
./Build test
./Build install
On platforms that don't support the "./" notation, that would be:
perl Build.PL
perl Build
perl Build test
perl Build install
If you wish, you may use the old MakeMaker style instead:
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
