Changes in v2.08 - Jonathan "Duke" Leto
April 11 2011
---------------------------

* Applied patch from RT #51669 (POD rendering)
* Applied patch from RT #61334 (fix croak in new_from_string)

Changes in v2.06 - leto
Sun Apr 13 19:57:25 EDT 2008
----------------------------
* added submatrix() (exactly the same behavior as sec() from PDL, for 2-D matrices )
Backstory: I was reading through "Mastering Algorithms with Perl" and
it says that it is not possible to do this in Math::MatrixReal without
iterating through all the elements of the matrix. Now it is wrong.
* t/submatrix.t created
* t/decompose_LR.t created
* !!!NEED documentation for submatrix()
Changes in v2.05 - leto
Fri Feb 29 21:58:47 EST 2008
----------------------------
* fix accidental use of "our" that broke old (like 5.5) Perl's
Thanks to srezic@cpan.org for the first FAILed report
* added $matrix->display_precision($n) to easily change the output
to something a bit easier to read
$a->display_precision(0) is useful for printing integer matrices nicely
* NEED print_precision() docs near stringify
* t/display_precision.t created
* example/ directory created with some benchmark scripts
Changes in v2.04 - leto
Sat Feb 23 20:59:08 EST 2008
---------------------------
* fixed pod errors
* $a->length does row+col vectors now
* converted all tests except ext1.t to Test::More and added some overall Kwalitee
* fixed error with doing $string = $matrix . "\nStuff\n";
* new funcion new_tridiag
* $matrix->min and $matrix->max now return the min/max element of a matrix
* new function new_random added which looks like (with default options shown )
# returns $n x $m matrix of real numbers between 0 and 10
new_random($n,$m, { symmetric => 0, tridiag => 0, bounded_by => [0,10], integer => 0 )
new_random($n, %options ) # returns a square matrix
This has proven to be pretty useful in the unit tests of Math::MatrixReal so I figured
others may want an easy way to generate a random matrix of your own flavor
* t/rand.t created
* t/tridiag.t created
* t/stringify.t created
* t/minimax.t created
* t/positive.t created
* t/gsm.t created
* t/similar.t created
Changes in v2.03 - leto
Sun Jan 27 13:19:55 EST 2008
---------------------------
* now using Module::Build, so Math::MatrixReal should in theory be able to
compile on systems without make, please test and let me know!
* new concatenation operator ".", i.e $c = $a . $b concatenates two
matrices side-by-side
* t/concat.t created
* new function assign_row
* beginning of a test suite overhaul (converting to Test::More )
Changes in v2.02 - leto
Sat Jun 09 12:29:08 EDT 2007
----------------------------
* Fixed the overloading for the division operator which did not recognize $a/2, reported
by Daniel Brooks <db48x@yahoo.com>
* Added support for matrix division notation, so that $a/$b = $a*$b**(-1) when $a and $b are square matrices
* t/div.t created
Changes in v2.01 - msouth
Fri Aug 19 23:40:24 EDT 2005
----------------------------
* Changed versioning format to leading zero after the
dot to make more minor versions possible this time
* Integration of Math::MatrixReal::Ext1 0.07
* merged new_from_cols and new_from_rows into one private
function which is called by wrappers with the old
names
* added tests to exercise all of the known failure modes
in new_from_{rows,cols} calls
* Fixes for POD
* added a much needed =over 4 to the start of the POD
* removed tabs
* reformatted indentation of the all of the code to 4 space
indent (from a mixture of tabs, 8 space, 4 space, and 2 space)
Changes in v1.9 - leto
Wed May 15 03:19:34 EST 2002
----------------------------
* as_yacas() function added
* t/yacas.t created

Allen Smith <easmith@beatrice.rutgers.edu> and the CPAN testers

* t/latex.t created
* t/bool.t created
* t/periodic.t created
* t/rank.t created
* new_from_string() shouldn't care about the case of the scientific E
notation (pointed out by Jim Bowery <jim_bowery@hotmail.com>)
* t/scinotation.t created
* is_idempotent() function added
* is_periodic() function added
* rank_LR() function added

-------------------------

Changes in v1.5 -- leto
Sat Jan 12 04:20:48 EST 2002
-------------------------
* t/inverse.t test 6 was numerically instable, commented out
I ran it 10000 times and got values from 1e-2 to 1e-16,
this caused the test to randomly fail, because it checked
that the value was less than 1e-10
I did not notice this problem because my default perl install
has USE_LONG_DOUBLE
* changed epsilon to be 1e-8 in funcs.pl ( was 1e-10)
Changes in v1.4 -- leto
Jan 10 2002
--------------------------
* Steffen Beyer gave maintainer-ship to Jonathan Leto
* exponent() function added

* $matrix ** -1 is now a quick way to compute the inverse, if it exists
* new_from_rows and new_from_cols integrated from Math::MatrixReal::Ext1
* is_diagonal() function added
* is_tridiagonal() function added
* each() function added
* each_diag() function added
* put functions used by all the test scripts into funcs.pl instead
of all of them having copy+paste code
* t/inverse.t created
* t/diag.t created
* t/exponent.t created
* t/trace.t created
* t/ext1.t created
* some documentation spelling errors corrected
* perl operators exp(),sin(),cos() overloaded

* is_upper_triangular() function added
* is_lower_triangular() function added
* t/triang.t created
* t/det.t created

Version 1.3 included the eigenvalues/eigenvectors computation methods,
added by Rodolphe Ortalo. Some test/bench programs were added also,
especially for these methods.
The documentation of the "new_from_string()" method was also slightly
changed because it had proven to be incomplete and misleading.
Version 1.2 changed the "new()" and "new_from_string()" methods so
that they don't fail anymore if an empty class name is given to them
(instead, "Math::MatrixReal" is used as the default).
Version 1.1 fixed a bug in the "kleene()" method.
Version 1.0 was the initial release.
