R/Multiplipe.R

#' Quickly test matrix multiplication of two matrices interpreted from strings.
#'
#' Building on Massign's core functionality, the Multiplipe operator `%*>%`
#' allows for quick prototyping of matrix multiplications.
#'
#' @param matrix1 a matrix or Massign character matrix that premultiplies
#'
#' @param matrix2 a matrix or Massign character matrix that postmultiplies
#'
#' @examples
#' # Basic usage
#' "1, 2
#'  3, 4" %*>%
#'  " 0, 1
#'    1, 0"
#'
#' # Second argument can be a matrix:
#' "1, 2, pi \\ 3, 4, 1 \\ 3, 2, 1" %*>% diag(c(1, 2, 3))
#'
#' # Or the first, for that matter:
#' diag(c(1, 2, 3)) %*>% "1, 2, pi \\ 3, 4, 1 \\ 3, 2, 1"
