=head1 NAME
Math::Financial - Calculates figures relating to loans and annuities.
=head1 SYNOPSIS
$calc = new Math::Financial(fv =E<gt> 100000, pv =E<gt> 1000);
$calc-E<gt>set->(pmt => 500, ir => 8);
$calc->compound_interest(find =E<gt> 'fv');
=head1 DESCRIPTION
This package contains solves mathematical problems relating to loans and annuities.
The attributes that are used in the equations may be set on a per-object basis, allowing
you to run a set of different calculations using the same numbers, or they may be fed
directly to the methods.
The attribute types, accessed through the C<get> and C<set> methods are
=over4
=item pv =E<gt> Present Value
=item fv =E<gt> Future Value
=item ir =E<gt> Yearly Interest Rate (in percent)
=item pmt =E<gt> Payment Amount
=item np =E<gt> Number of Payments/Loan Term
=item tpy =E<gt> Terms Per Year (defaults to 12)
=item pd =E<gt> Payments made so far (used only for loan/annuity balances)
=back
Attributes are case-insensitive. The documentation for the individual methods
indicates which attributes must be set for those methods.
Calculations are based B<either> on the attributes set with the C<new> or C<set>
methods, B<or> with arguments fed directly to the methods. This seemed like the
least confusing way to make the interface flexible for people who are using the
module in different ways.
Also, performing a calculation
does B<not> update the attribute of the solution. In other words, if
you solve an equation that returns fv, the solution is returned but the
internal fv field is unaffected.
Any attempted calculation which cannot be completed -- due to either missing or
invalid attributes -- will return C<undef>.
I am interested to hear from people using this module -- let me know what
you think about the interface and how it can be improved.

Object constructor. See above for a description of the available attributes.
You do not I<have> to set attributes here, you can also do so using C<set>,
or feed attributes directly to the methods.
There are no default values for any of the attributes except C<TPY> (Terms Per Year),
which is 12 by default, and C<PD> which defaults to zero.
If you don't want to use the object-oriented interface, see the L<EXPORTS> section
below.

You can get one or several attributes using this method. In the multiple
attribute formats, it accepts either a list or a list reference as input.
In single attribute context, returns a scalar. In multiple attribute context,
it returns a list or a reference to a list, depending on the calling context.

C<$calc-E<gt>compound_interest>
C<$calc-E<gt>compound_interest-E<gt>('fv')>
C<$calc-E<gt>compound_interest-E<gt>(find =E<gt> 'fv')>
Calculates compund interest for an annuity. With any 3 of pv, fv, np, and ir,
you can always solve the fourth.
Without arguments, the method will attempt to figure out what you'd like to solve
based on what attributes of the object are defined. Usually, you'll probably want to
explicitly request what attribute you'd like returned, which you can do using
the second or third method.

C<funding_annuity> calculates how much money ( C<fv> ) you will have at the end of C<np> periods
if you deposit C<pmt> into the account each period and the account earns C<ir> interest per year.
You may want to set the C<tpy> attribute here to something other than 12, since, while loans

This works just like compound interest, but there is no consideration of C<np>.
With any 2 of pv, fv, and ir, you can always solve for the third.
Without arguments, the method will attempt to figure out what you'd like to solve
based on what attributes of the object have been defined. Usually, you'll probably want to
explicitly request what attribute you'd like returned, which you can do using
the second or third method.

=head1 REQUIRES
POSIX -- c_type functions
(c_types might work under Windows. I really don't know. I'd appreciate it if someome
would let me know. If they don't, in a future release,
I'll provide a runtime replacement for the POSIX functions so it'll work on Win releases. )
=head1 EXPORTS
By default, nothing.
If you'd like to use a procedural interface, you can C<use Math::Financial qw(:standard)>.
Then you can call the methods as function, without an object reference, like
C<$term = loan_term(ir =E<gt> 6.5, pmt =E<gt> 1000, pv =E<gt> 200000);>
All of the methods are exported in this fashion, except for C<set> and C<get>; this
just seemed too confusing.
You can still use the facility of C<set> and C<get> with the procedural interface (i.e., you
can set the attributes and them use them for many different calculations), but you
must call them as C<Math::Financial::set> and C<Math::Financial::get>.
