dagolden asked recently on his blog for suggestions on which libraries should have Alien:: modules. I recently wrote Math::GSLx::ODEIVE2 which needs not only the GSL libraries but the newest (1.15) version, so these things have been on my mind.
I have started mocking up Alien::GSL at my GitHub repository. Take a look and please let me know ANY thoughts.
Here is what I posted on dagolden.com:
Ok so I have been working on an Alien::GSL module. Since the magic is supposed to go in the Makefile.PL, I worry that I use the functionality without any testing first. However it is a simple module so not much testing is needed perhaps (none is written yet). How do people find the workflow? Suggestions are welcome ...
I close by soliciting comment here. Thanks for any thoughts!
