ASciLib provides a minimalistic layer to external C and C++ libraries - using SWIG as the primary interface provider. At this point ASciLib is a proof-of-concept. Perl should work fine - as this is based on Jonathan Leto's Math::GSL. It compiles and integrates for Ruby - a lot of functions should work. One of the interesting features of ASciLib is that it *includes* recent GSL sources. So if you need to use the latest...
