=head1 NAME
Math::SymbolicX::NoSimplification - Turn off Math::Symbolic simplification
=head1 SYNOPSIS
use Math::SymbolicX::NoSimplification qw(:all);
# ... code that uses Math::Symbolic ...
# Won't use the builtin simplification routines.
# ...
do_simplify();
# ... code that uses Math::Symbolic ...
# Will use the builtin simplification routines.
# ...
dont_simplify();
# ... you get the idea ...
=head1 DESCRIPTION
This module offers facilities to turn off the builtin Math::Symbolic
simplification routines and replace them with routines that just clone
the objects. You may want to do this in cases where the simplification
routines fail to simplify the Math::Symbolic trees and waste a lot of
CPU time. (For example, calculating the first order Taylor polynomial of
a moderately complex test function was sped up by 100% on my machine.)
A word of caution, however: If you turn off the simplification routines,
some procedures may produce very, very large trees. One such procedure
would be the consecutive application of many derivatives to a product
without intermediate simplification. This would yield exponential
growth of nodes. (And may, in fact, still do if you keep the simplification
heuristics turned on because most expressions cannot be simplified
significantly.)
=head2 USAGE
Just load the module to turn off simplification. To turn it back on, you
can call Cdo_simplify()> and to
turn it off again, you may call
Cdo_simplify()>. Since the module's name
is quite long, you may choose to import C and/or
C into your namespace using standard C semantics.
See below.
=head2 CLASS METHODS
=over 2
=item do_simplify
Turn simplification back on.
=item dont_simplify
Turn simplification off.
=back
=head2 EXPORT
None by default, but you may choose to import either the routines
C and/or C or both by using the
C<:all> exporter group. See also: L
