Math-Symbolic-Custom-Simplification version 1.01
================================================
This module is an extension to the Math::Symbolic module. A basic
familiarity with that module is required.
Math::Symbolic offers some builtin simplification routines. These, however,
are not capable of complex simplifications. This extension offers facilities
to override the default simplification routines through means of subclassing
this module. A subclass of this module is required to define a C
object method that implements a simplification of Math::Symbolic trees.
From the synopsis:
package Math::Symbolic::Custom::MySimplification;
use base 'Math::Symbolic::Custom::Simplification';
sub simplify {
my $tree = shift;
# ... simplify tree ...
return $simplified;
}
1;
# Then, in another portion of your code.
Math::Symbolic::Custom::MySimplification->register();
# Code that uses MySimplification:
# $tree->simplify() invokes
# Math::Symbolic::Custom::MySimplification::simplify($tree).
Math::Symbolic::Custom::MySimplification->unregister();
# Code that uses the default simplification routines or whichever
# simplification routines where registered before.
