# Math::GSL
Math::GSL is a Perl interface to the [GNU Scientific Library](http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/), using [SWIG](http://swig.org). The GNU
Scientific Library (GSL) is a numerical library for C and C++ programmers. It
is free software under the GNU General Public License. Math::GSL uses SWIG to
generate Perl bindings to *most* GSL functionality.
[![Build Status](https://secure.travis-ci.org/leto/math--gsl.png)](http://travis-ci.org/leto/math--gsl)
# Dependencies
## CPAN distribution dependencies
Currently Math::GSL requires at least Perl 5.8.1 and GSL 1.15 to compile. It
also requires that the gsl-config binary can be found in your PATH or [PkgConfig](http://metacpan.org/release/PkgConfig/) to find GSL.
## Git repo dependencies
SWIG >= 2.x is needed to build Math::GSL from the git repo, in addition to all
the dependencies above. 2.0.8 or newer is required to work with Perl 5.20 and
higher. SWIG 3.x is recommended.
On OS X with Homebrew, you can install swig with:
brew install swig
