Math::GSL(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Math::GSL(3)

Math::GSL - Perl interface to the GNU Scientific Library (GSL)

Version 0.39

    use Math::GSL::Matrix;
    my $matrix = Math::GSL::Matrix->new(5,5);   # 5x5 zero matrix
    # note that columns and rows are zero-based
    $matrix->set_col(0, [1..5])                 # set *first* column to 1,2,3,4,5
           ->set_row(2, [5..9]);                # set *third* column to 5,6,7,8,9
    my @matrix = $matrix->as_list;              # matrix as Perl list
    my $gsl_matrix = $matrix->raw;              # underlying GSL object
    use Math::GSL::RNG;
    my $rng = Math::GSL::RNG->new;
    my @random_numbers = $rng->get(1000);
    use Math::GSL::Deriv qw/:all/;
    my $function = sub { my $x=shift; sin($x**2) };
    my ($status,$val,$err) = gsl_deriv_central($function, 5, 0.01 );
    use Math::GSL qw/gsl_version/;
    # get a version object for the version of the underlying GSL library,
    # which will stringify to a version number
    my $gsl_version = gsl_version();
Each GSL subsystem has its own module. For example, the random number generator subsystem is Math::GSL::RNG. Many subsystems have a more Perlish and object-oriented frontend which can be used, as the above example shows. The raw GSL object is useful for using the low-level GSL functions, which in the case of the Matrix subsytem, would be of the form gsl_matrix_* . Each module has further documentation about the low-level C functions as well as using the more intuitive (but slightly slower) object-oriented interface.

This software is still in active development, we appreciate your detailed bug reports and documentation patches. Please report any bugs or feature requests to the authors directly.

Some operating system configurations will make the compilation of Math::GSL fail. One common problem that happens on RedHat Linux (RHEL) and CentOS looks like this:
    Error:  Can't load '/usr/src/misc/perl-package/Math-GSL-0.20/blib/arch/auto/Math/GSL/Errno/'
    for module Math::GSL::Errno: /usr/src/misc/perl-package/Math-GSL-0.20/blib/arch/auto/Math/GSL/Errno/
    cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied at /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/ line 203.
    #  at blib/lib/Math/GSL/ line 10
This is due the the SE Linux setting being set to "enforcing". To Temporarily disable enforcement on a running system:
    /usr/sbin/setenforce 0
To permanently disable enforcement during a system startup change "enforcing" to "disabled" in ''/etc/selinux/config'' and reboot.
