Fibonacci is a Ruby gem written as a C-extension for exploring the Fibonacci series.


Installation:

gem install fibonacci

Usage:

irb(main):001:0> require 'fibonacci'
#=> true

irb(main):002:0> fib = Fibonacci.new
#=> #<Fibonacci:0x000000025cf218>

fib.print(n) will print the first n terms of the series

irb(main):003:0> fib.print(5)
#=> 0
    1
    1
    2
    3

fib[n] will return the nth term of the series, the nth term is computed iteratively

irb(main):004:0> fib[1000]
#=> 43466557686937456435688527675040625802564660517371780402481729089536555417949051890403879840079255169295922593080322634775209689623239873322471161642996440906533187938298969649928516003704476137795166849228875

fib.matrix(n) will return the nth power of matrix(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number#Matrix_form)

irb(main):013:0> fib.matrix(100)
#=> [[573147844013817084101, 354224848179261915075], [354224848179261915075, 218922995834555169026]]

fib.terms(n) will return an array of first n terms of the series

irb(main):005:0> fib.terms(5)
#=> [0, 1, 1, 2, 3]

fib.num_digits(n) will return the number of digits in the nth term of series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number#Computation_by_rounding)

irb(main):007:0> fib.num_digits(1000)
#=> 209

irb(main):006:0> fib[1000].to_s.length
#=> 209

fib.fast_val(n) will return the nth term of the series, the nth term is computed as the product of the Lucas numbers,
