NAME
       PDL::GSL::DIFF - PDL interface to numerical differentiation routines in GSL

DESCRIPTION
       This is an interface to the numerical differentiation package present in the GNU
       Scientific Library.

SYNOPSIS
	  use PDL;
	  use PDL::GSL::DIFF;

	  my $x0 = 3.3;

	  my @res = gsldiff(\&myfunction,$x0);
	  # same as above:
	  @res = gsldiff(\&myfunction,$x0,{Method => 'central'});

	  # use only values greater than $x0 to get the derivative
	  @res =  gsldiff(\&myfunction,$x0,{Method => 'forward'});

	  # use only values smaller than $x0 to get the derivative
	  @res = gsldiff(\&myfunction,$x0,{Method => 'backward'});

	  sub myfunction{
	    my ($x) = @_;
	    return $x**2;
	  }

FUNCTIONS
   gsldiff()
       This functions serves as an interface to the three differentiation functions present in
       GSL: gsl_diff_central, gsl_diff_backward and gsl_diff_forward. To compute the derivative,
       the central method uses values greater and smaller than the point at which the derivative
       is to be evaluated, while backward and forward use only values smaller and greater
       respectively. gsldiff() returns both the derivative and an absolute error estimate. The
       default	method is 'central', others can be specified by passing an option.

       Please check the GSL documentation for more information.

       Usage:

	 ($d,$abserr) = gsldiff($function_ref,$x,{Method => $method});

       Example:

	 #derivative using default method ('central')
	 ($d,$abserr) = gsldiff(\&myf,3.3);

	 #same as above with method set explicitly
	 ($d,$abserr) = gsldiff(\&myf,3.3,{Method => 'central'});

	 #using backward & forward methods
	 ($d,$abserr) = gsldiff(\&myf,3.3,{Method => 'backward'});
	 ($d,$abserr) = gsldiff(\&myf,3.3,{Method => 'forward'});

	 sub myf{
	   my ($x) = @_;
	   return exp($x);
	 }

FUNCTIONS
   diff_central
	 Signature: (double x(); double [o] res(); double [o] abserr(); SV* funcion)

       info not available

       diff_central does not process bad values.  It will set the bad-value flag of all output
       piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

   diff_backward
	 Signature: (double x(); double [o] res(); double [o] abserr(); SV* funcion)

       info not available

       diff_backward does not process bad values.  It will set the bad-value flag of all output
       piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

   diff_forward
	 Signature: (double x(); double [o] res(); double [o] abserr(); SV* funcion)

       info not available

       diff_forward does not process bad values.  It will set the bad-value flag of all output
       piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.
