Re: Math::Pari 0.91 released |
Hi Ilya, first a stupid question: is your perl PARI package compatible with the 2.0.alpha we just released ? I'm not sure to what extent Math::Pari depends on the GP syntax (presumably very little) but, following your initial modifications of the analyzer, we changed many things there. Could you check that we did not break anything ? (a technical question by the way, since I don't have the time to check it myself now: do you still rely on the 'x' code in identifier and the foreign* autoloading mechanism ? Do you use the MallocProcs structure ?) > Ilya Zakharevich <ilya@math.ohio-state.edu> wrote: > > Math::Pari is a module which make PARI 1.39.4+ builtin into Perl. > [...] > > The goodies which may be useful for non-Perl context too: > > a) Minor changes gphelp (but one can use chap3); A help script (also called gphelp...) is now provided with the standard PARI distribution. I wrote it after seeing yours a long time ago.

Hopefully for the beta (it WILL get included at some point...). > d) Additional graphical functions documented; Such as ?
