Getting started

The GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is a collection of routines for numerical computing. The routines have been written from scratch in C, and present a modern Applications Programming Interface (API) for C programmers, allowing wrappers to be written for very high level languages. The source code is distributed under the GNU General Public License.

The Ruby/GSL is Ruby bindings for GSL. This provides higher-level interfaces to the GSL functions. See here for installation. To use the library , just put at the head of your scripts require("gsl"), or type it from the command line of irb.
