Re: ed borasky and his second favourite programming language

Dear Ed,

Gnuplot is just a
plotting engine, though, isn’t it? You still have to do the analysis in
some language, right?

That’s true except for simple things- but there are Ruby bindings
available
for it.

Have you looked at Singular?

No, but I will. Thanks for the reference. I couldn’t find any bindings
on
the first page of Google results for “Singular Ruby”.
kan/sm1 is open source and free. It’s part of OpenXM

(http://www.math.sci.kobe-u.ac.jp/OpenXM) .

Somewhere, they promise Ruby bindings for it, but these haven’t
materialised
for me so far ( maybe it’s a compiling problem though).

Maple and Mathematica aren’t free of course. When I am angry at their
syntax
I sometimes feel that software can be protected from potential users by
making it commercial :slight_smile:

Best regards,

Axel

that’s histerical - i feel exactly the same way about idl!

fortunately i’ve managed to wrap it in a generic way so i can
transparently
call it from ruby and my co-worker is writing most of the called
routines.
