Welcome to GSL shell documentationΒΆ

GSL Shell has moved

The project, its documentation and the release packages are now hosted on Github. Please find here the user manual.

GSL shell is an interactive command line interface that provides easy access to the GNU Scientific Library (GSL) collection of mathematical methods for numerical computations.

GSL shell can be used interactively to perform calculations with matrices or vectors but it also allows for complex user-defined functions with the Lua scripting interpreter.

Lua is a very interesting and easy to learn scripting language that features advanced functionalities like closures and metamethods. Lua is very easy to learn and will give you the power of defining your own complex routines to use the GSL library more effectively.

Please find here the GSL Shell github project page.
