Thanks no_slogan!

I'll be out most of the day, so I'll take a look at your recommendations either tonight or tomorrow and get them implemented.

    Just one more thought. The namespace Geo::Compass:: highlights the module's practical application, while Geo::Magnetic:: leans toward its theoretical nature (modeling the geomagnetic field). Either one seems fine to me. I leave the choice in your hands.

      I have released Geo::Compass::Variation. If it isn't available yet, it will be shortly. Thanks to everyone who provided their input and thoughts into the naming, and the reasons/details surrounding the suggestions.

      I made the following changes:

      • added an alias of mag_var() to mag_dec()
      • renamed _calculate() to mag_field()
      • mag_field() now returns the $X, $Y, $Z information instead of the calculated information
      • mag_dec() and mag_inc() now perform their own calculations on the data returned by mag_field()

      I have not yet incorporated the test data into the test suite, but that'll come soon enough.

        Hi Steve, ++ on the release. One suggestion: make note in the doc of the fact that the module will be updated with the current WMM data from NOAA (NGA) to account for changes in varition over time, and when to expect the updates.

        The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
