#### Description:

Are there other modules other than the basic MATH module(s) that contain libraries of common equations, as to alleviate writing out each individual equation?Answer: How can I import previously created math functions? contributed by Zaxo PDL is an extension which gives high speed matrix operations, and more. It has been used a lot for graphics and for scientific computing. Gsl is a yet-incomplete extension which uses the Gnu Scientific Library (GSL). It is a wip, only in version 0.03. So far it has bindings for calculating special functions. I was unable to install it due to hardcoded paths which disagreed with my gsl tree. |

Answer: How can I import previously created math functions? contributed by ariels The amazing Inline module offers help here, too. Not all <math.h> functions are available in Perl (even if you use POSIX;). Here's how to print some erf() values, for instance (a function almost certainly available in your maths library):
You can of course write it into your modules, and use it to access you own libraries. |

Answer: How can I import previously created math functions? contributed by randyk The Math::Cephes module contains an interface to math functions of Stephen Moshier's cephes math library. Interfaces are also included to handle some common polynomial, matrix, fraction, and complex number operations. |
