|Math::Pari 0.93 released (Perl module based on 1.37.4+)|
Version 0.93 of Math::Pari module is released. What follows is README file of the distribution. Enjoy, Ilya ====================================================================== Package Math::Pari is a Perl interface to famous library PARI for numerical/scientific/number-theoretic calculations. It allows use of most PARI functions (>500) as Perl functions, and (almost) seamless merging of PARI and Perl data. Documentation to this package is contained inside Pari.pm. After installing it is accessible by standard means, like perldoc Math::Pari man Math::Pari and possibly in other forms particular for your system. A copy of documentation of the PARI library in POD format is provided as well, access it as Math::libPARI: perldoc Math::libPARI man Math::libPARI If you have a not very old perl (5.003 should do), then uncompress the archive into a separate directory, find the architecture of your processor (if it is not known/supported, and recognized automatically, the slower 'port' code should be used), and do perl Makefile.PL or perl Makefile.PL machine=hppa (recognized "processors" are sun3 sparcv7 sparcv8micro sparcv8super alpha hppa i386 port, the versions starting from 0.92 should autorecognize them in most situations), then make make test (expect several failures from will_fail.t, but Pari.t and Testout.t should pass). Now make install should make this extension available to the perl programs. (You can get a better understanding of the translations made by Testout.t by running it manually: perl t/Testout.t after install, or perl -Mblib t/Testout.t before install.) The version 0.93 was tested with OS/2 and Solaris. It uses version 1.37.4+ of the PARI library.
