Re: Using modular numbers with Math::Pari

in reply to Using modular numbers with Math::Pari

Pari's lift function "lifts" a modular residue back into the integers.
? lift( 1 / Mod(3,17) ) %1 = 6
Presumably it is available from the Math::Pari bindings somehow (I only know pari, not the Perl bindings).

    Thanks!

    perl -MMath::Pari=PARI,Mod,lift -wle 'print lift(PARI(1)/Mod(3,17))' 6

    Perfect - not sure I'd ever have found that searching the docs myself.

[shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
[Lady_Aleena]: Now I will see if my perl-fu is as bad as I think it is.
[shmem]: ah, geany uses its own idea of tags. Ah well...
