}
Run composer update
and you're done.
Equation Operating System
jlawrence\eos\
This class makes it incredibly easy to use and parse/solve equations in
your own applications. NOTE ALL of the functions within
these classes are static. It is also important to note that these
classes throw exceptions if running in to errors, please read the beginning
of the Math.php
file for the defines of the exceptions thrown. Exceptions
includes a descriptive message of the error encountered and within Parser
will
also typically include the full equation used.
Parser
This class has one important function, Parser::solve()
which does all the legwork,
so we'll start there and end with examples.
use jlawrence\eos\Parser;
solve($infix, $variables)
To use this function:
$value = Parser::solve($eq, $vars);
$infix
Is simply a standard equation with variable support.
Example Equations:
2(4x)
5+((1+2)*4)+3
5+4(1+2)+3
10*sin(x)
10*cos(x)
The parser has good implied multiplication.
$variables
The variables are fairly simple to understand. If it contains a scalar (ie
a nonarray value) every variable within the equation will be replaced with
that number. If it contains an array, there will be a byvariable replacement 
note that the array MUST be in the format of 'variable' => value
Such as:
array(
'x' => 2,
'y' => 3
);
Given the equation:
5x^y
If this is called by:
Parser::solveIF('5x^y', 2);
It will equal '20', as every variable is replaced by 2. However, if called like:
Parser::solveIF('5x^y', array(
'x' => 2,
'y' => 3));
You will get the result of '40' as it would equate to 5*2^3
, as expected.
jlawrence\eos\Graph
To use:
use jlawrence\eos\Graph;
This is the fun class that can create graphs. The image will default to 640x480, to initialize a different size use:
Graph::init($width, $height);
The $width
and $height
are the values used for the image size.
graph($eq, $xLow, $xHigh, [$xStep, $xyGrid, $yGuess, ...])
This method will generate the graph for the equation ($eq
) with a min and max
x
range that it will parse through. All Variables explained:

$eq
The Standard Equation to use. Must have a variable in it. (iex
) 
$xLow
The starting point for the calculations  the left side of the graph. 
$xHigh
The last point calculated for the variable  the right side of the graph. 
$xStep
Stepping point for the variable. Set to null/false to use the smart xStep feature within the graph class. 
$xyGrid = false
Showx/y
gridlines on the graph. Defaults to false. Each grid line is set at an integer, with a max of 30 lines, so it will calculate the stepping for it. When the grid is show, the lines are labeled along the top and left side of the image. 
$yGuess = true
Guess the Lower and Upperybounds
(The bottom and top of the image respectively.) This will set the the bounds to the lowesty
value encountered for the$yLow
, and the largesty
value for$yHigh
. 
$yLow = null
Lower bound fory
. Will be reset if a lower value fory
is found if$yGuess
is true. 
$yHigh = null
Upper bound fory
. Will be reset if a largery
value is found if$yGuess
is true.
If you don't want the axis' labeled with their numbers, you can turn off the default behavior with:
Graph::$labelAxis = false;
TODO:
 Allow userdefined colors for all aspects of the graph.
To set up a graph with a 21x21
window (ie 10 to 10
) for the equation
sin(x)
and output as PNG, would use as:
Graph::graph('sin(x)', 10, 10, 0.01, true, false, 10, 10);
Graph::outPNG();
Development
Testing
Run the unit tests by first installing phpunit with (from the repository root)
composer update
Then run the tests with
phpunit
When creating classes for adding functions to the package, make sure to call
Parser::solveIF()
instead of Parser::solve()
so that the class retains
the full original equation used by the user.
