Working on a rather elementary piece of mathematics. I want to write a Perl module that solves given game matrices using the pivot method.

I had actually tried to do this once before, just after I tried the fuzzy thingy. This, I know much better; it's really just a matter of shoving the math into the code and figuring out precisely what data structure my brain's using.

I would say I've got about 1/3rd the basic methods in place. The data structure's sort of not important, the way I'm doing it. Most of the rules about stuff are in the methods, which is kind of the way it should be. The resulting code's not the most readable thing I've ever laid eyes on, in the sense that you don't know precisely what a given chunk of code is meant for, but you know what it does.
