in reply to CPAN, the <code>use</code>able FAQ

Very slick, PrincePawn. However if I may pick a bone, Quantum::Superpositions doesn't actually do physics. It's better name would be Math::SetTheory because what it really does is provide the union, intersection, Min{} and Max{} operators for use on sets. It is regrettably not very useful for extracting information from waveforms, or building waveforms from observed data.

The superposition aspect of the module is supposed to be the idea that operators act on the 'states' of the object, but in reality it is doing operations on a set of discreet elements.

Don't think that I'm bagging it out, I use it heavily and love it. But it would be false advertising to tell people that perl does Quantum Superpositions.

    5{ think that I'm bagging it out, </code> Without looking, I think some of Jarko Hietaniemi's(or however you spell that guy's name) modules such as Set::Scalar or Set::Bag or the Multiset one might replicate it's functionality.
