Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.2.2nb5, Package name: yacas-1.2.2nb5, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Yacas (Yet Another Computer Algebra System) is a small and highly flexible
computer algebra language. The syntax uses a infix-operator grammar
parser. The distribution contains a small library of mathematical functions,
but its real strength is in the language in which you can easily write your
own symbolic manipulation algorithms. It supports arbitrary precision
arithmetic.

The current version is 1.0.28 (the first release was 1.0.0). The language is
very much in a finished state. Any code written for it should be usable in
future versions. Also, the language should prove very easy to learn.

Yacas is written in very clean c++ code, and is very portable . It can compile
stand-alone, and is easily embeddable. Yacas contains a native arbitrary
precision arithmetic module, but can also be used with GMP.

Things implemented include: arbitrary precision, rational numeric, vector,
complex, and matrix computations (including inverses and determinants and
solving matrix equations), derivatives, solving, Taylor series, numerical
solving (Newtons method), and a lot more non-mathematical algorithms. The
language natively supports variables and user-defined functions. There is
basic support for polynomials.

Log message:
Recursive PKGREVISION bump for all packages mentioning 'perl',
having a PKGNAME of p5-*, or depending such a package,
for perl-5.22.0.
   2014-05-30 01:38:20 by Thomas Klausner | Files touched by this commit (3049)
Log message:
Bump for perl-5.20.0.
Do it for all packages that
* mention perl, or
* have a directory name starting with p5-*, or
* depend on a package starting with p5-
like last time, for 5.18, where this didn't lead to complaints.
Let me know if you have any this time.

Log message:
Bump all packages for perl-5.18, that
a) refer 'perl' in their Makefile, or
b) have a directory name of p5-*, or
c) have any dependency on any p5-* package

Like last time, where this caused no complaints.

Bump all packages that use perl, or depend on a p5-* package, or

I hope that's all of them.
