in reply to Perl & Math: A Quick Reference

I wrote a module when I was exploring how to do perl math with Inline::C, which might be a useful example for people thinking of going that route.

While I didn't try to put in more than the basics, it does let you create and work with big vectors of doubles, like this:

use Vector qw(vector); my $a = vector( size=>10000, first=>0.0, by=>0.01 ); my $b = sin($a); my $c = $a + $b; print $c->[200];
You can find the source code, documentation, and a test suite at

    Excellent demonstration of the use of Inline::C as well.
