# NAME
Common::Routine - Provide and synthesize very commonly used routines that are not provided in perl's build-in routines.
# VERSION
version 0.0.5
# SYNOPSIS
use Common::Routine ":all";
# routines used for math caculation
my @array = 1..10;
my $max = max @array # return 10
my $min = min @array # return 1
my $mean = mean @array # return 5.5
my $median = median @array # return 5.5
my $sum = sum @array # return 55
my $var = var @array # return 9.166667
my $sd = sd @array # return 3.02765
# routines for processing of string
my $str = " abc ";
my $t = trim $str; # return "abc"
my $l = ltrim $str; # return "abc "
my $r = rtrim $str; # return " abc"
# format number
my $num = 1234.3567;
my $re = round $num; # return 1234
my $re = round $num, 2; # return 1234.36
my $re = ceil $num; # return 1235
my $re = floor $num; # return 1234
my $re = format_number $num # return 1,234.36
my $re = format_number $num,1 # return 1,234.4
# DESCRIPTION
The aim of this module is to provide the very common used functions that are not existed in perl's build-in functions
In my daily work, I will used some very common function that are very simple and useful, but I have to write it by
myself or find and utilize them from different module. It's really boring to do this, and the purpose of this module is
to combat this problem.
# METHODS
## round($number, $precison)
Rounds the number to the specified precision. if `$precision` is omitted, it will be setted `0` (default:0).
## max(@elements)
Return the entry in the list with the highest numerical value. If the list is empty then `undef` is returned.
Arguments can be a Array or ArrayRef
## min(@elements)
Similar to ["max"](#max) but returns the entry in the list with the lowest numberical value. If the list is empty
then `undef` is returned.
Arguments can be a Array or ArrayRef
## sum(@elements)
Returns the numerical sum of all the elements in `@elements`. If `@elements` is empty then
`undef` is returned.
Arguments can be a Array or ArrayRef
## mean(@elements)
Returns the numerical mean of all the elements in `@elements`. If `@elements` is empty
then `undef` is returned.
Arguments can be a Array or ArrayRef
## median(@elements)
Returns the numerical mean of all the elements in `@elements`. If `@elements` is empty
then `undef` is returned.
Arguments can be a Array or ArrayRef
## var(@elements)
Returns the variance of list `@elements`
If `@elements` is empty then `undef` is returned.
Arguments can be a Array or ArrayRef
## sd(@elements)
Returns the standard deviation of list `@elements`
If `@elements` is empty then `undef` is returned.
Arguments can be a Array or ArrayRef
## trim($string)
Remove the whitespaces at the beginning or end of `$string`
if $string is `undef`, then `undef` is returned
## ltrim($string)
Remove the whitespaces at the beginning of `$string`
if $string is `undef`, then `undef` is returned
## rtrim($string)
Remove the whitespaces at the end of `$string`
if $string is `undef`, then `undef` is returned
