NAME

Math::Libgsl::Multiset - An interface to libgsl, the Gnu Scientific Library - Multisets.

SYNOPSIS

use Math::Libgsl::Multiset;

DESCRIPTION

Math::Libgsl::Multiset is an interface to the multiset functions of libgsl, the Gnu Scientific Library.

This package provides both the low-level interface to the C library (Raw) and a more comfortable interface layer for the Raku programmer.

new(:$n!, :$k!)

new($n!, $k!)

The constructor accepts two parameters: the total number of elements in the set and the number of elements chosen from the set; the parameters can be passed as Pair-s or as single values. The multiset object is already initialized in lexicographically first multiset, i.e. 0 repeated $k times.

init(:$start? = TOP)

This method initialize the multiset object and returns self. The default is to initialize the object in lexicographically first multiset, but by specifying the optional parameter $start as BOTTOM the initialization is performed in the lexicographically last multiset, i.e. $n − 1 repeated $k times. TOP and BOTTOM are declared as values of the Starting-point enum.

copy($src! where * ~~ Math::Libgsl::Combination)

This method copies the multiset $src into the current multiset object and returns self.

get(Int $elem! --> Int)

This method returns the multiset value at position $elem.

all(--> Seq)

This method returns a Seq of all the elements of the current multiset.

size(--> List)

This method returns the (n, k) parameters of the current multiset object.

is-valid(--> Bool)

This method checks whether the current multiset is valid: the k elements should lie in the range 0 to $n − 1, with each value occurring once at most and in nondecreasing order.

next()

prev()

These functions advance or step backwards the multiset and return self, useful for method chaining.

bnext(--> Bool)

bprev(--> Bool)

These functions advance or step backwards the multiset and return a Bool: True if successful or False if there's no more multiset to produce.

write(Str $filename! --> Int)

This method writes the multiset data to a file.

read(Str $filename! --> Int)

This method reads the multiset data from a file. The multiset must be of the same size of the one to be read.

fprintf(Str $filename!, Str $format! --> Int)

This method writes the multiset data to a file, using the format specifier.

fscanf(Str $filename!)

This method reads the multiset data from a file. The multiset must be of the same size of the one to be read.

C Library Documentation

For more details on libgsl see https://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/. The excellent C Library manual is available here https://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/doc/html/index.html, or here https://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/doc/latex/gsl-ref.pdf in PDF format.

Prerequisites

This module requires the libgsl library to be installed. Please follow the instructions below based on your platform:

Debian Linux

sudo apt install libgsl23 libgsl-dev libgslcblas0

That command will install libgslcblas0 as well, since it's used by the GSL.

Ubuntu 18.04

libgsl23 and libgslcblas0 have a missing symbol on Ubuntu 18.04. I solved the issue installing the Debian Buster version of those three libraries:

Installation

To install it using zef (a module management tool):

$ zef install Math::Libgsl::Combination
