# Algorithm-QuineMcCluskey
## version 1.00
This module creates objects designed to solve boolean expressions via
the Quine-McCluskey algorithm. Its effectiveness is dependent on the
size of problem; the number of minterms that can be set goes up
exponentially with the number of variables, which limits the size of
the problems that can be solved.
Currently, a test with 12 variables (meaning there are 4,096 terms)
takes 3 minutes to solve on a not-terribly-modern i7 Pentium laptop
computer with 4G of memory. This would seem to be a reasonable
upper limit to what this algorithm can solve.
## INSTALLATION
To install this module, run the following commands:
```shell
perl Build.PL
./Build
./Build test
./Build install
```
