=head1 DESCRIPTION
Although there are more clever mechanisms to interact with Wolfram's Mathematica (namely MathLink) they are very hard to write. L simply starts a PTY, runs the command line C$program,\; and\; manages\; input/output\; via\; string\; transport.\; While\; a\; MathLink\; client\; for\; Perl\; would\; be\; ideal,\; this\; module\; gets\; the\; job\; done.\; This\; module\; does\; not\; contain\; a\; Mathematica\; interpreter.\; Mathematica\; must\; be\; installed\; on\; the\; computer\; before\; installing/using\; L.\; =head1\; METHODS\; =head2\; new\; Constructor\; method.\; Takes\; hash\; or\; hashreference\; of\; options:\; =over\; =item\; *\; log\; -\; If\; set\; to\; a\; true\; value\; (true\; by\; default),\; the\; full\; log\; will\; be\; available\; via\; the\; Cmethod.\; =item\; *\; command\; -\; The\; command\; to\; invoke\; to\; start\; the\; Mathematica\; interpreter.\; The\; default\; is\; C$ .\; =item\; *\; warn\_after\; -\; Number\; of\; seconds\; to\; wait\; before\; warning\; when\; waiting\; for\; a\; response\; from\; the\; Mathematica\; interpreter.\; After\; this\; time,\; a\; warning\; is\; issued,\; which\; one\; might\; want\; to\; trap.\; =item\; *\; pty\; -\; An\; Lobject\; (or\; one\; which\; satisfies\; its\; api).\; If\; this\; is\; not\; specified,\; one\; will\; be\; created.\; =back\; =head2\; evaluate\; Takes\; a\; string\; to\; pass\; to\; the\; Mathematica\; interpreter\; for\; evaluation.\; Returns\; a\; string\; of\; results.\; Prompt\; makers\; are\; stripped\; from\; the\; result.\; =head2\; log\; If\; the\; Cconstructor\; option\; was\; set,\; this\; accessor\; will\; contain\; the\; full\; I/O\; log\; of\; the\; PTY\; connection,\; including\; Mathematica\; prompts.\; =head2\; pty\; Accessor\; method\; which\; returns\; the\; active\; Lobject.\; This\; object\; will\; be\; closed\; when\; the\; Lobject\; is\; destroyed.\; =head1\; SOURCE\; REPOSITORY\; Ljberger\; math-mathematica>\; =head1\; AUTHOR\; Joel\; Berger,\; Ejoel.a.berger@gmail.comE=head1\; COPYRIGHT\; AND\; LICENSE\; Copyright\; (C)\; 2012\; by\; Joel\; Berger\; This\; library\; is\; free\; software;\; you\; can\; redistribute\; it\; and/or\; modify\; it\; under\; the\; same\; terms\; as\; Perl\; itself.\; Mathematica,\; MathLink\; and\; Wolfram\; are\; trademarks\; of\; Wolfram\; Research,\; Inc.\; L$$
