Bindings to Miniball, a smallest enclosing ball library

Latest on Hackage:

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

Bindings to Miniball, a C++ library ( for computing the smallest enclosing ball of a set of points in Euclidean space.

The Miniball library itself is not included, as I consider it a dependency. It consists of only a header file, and can be retrieved from To build this package, simply have miniball.hpp in GCC's include path. The standard C++ library and GCC with C++ support are also needed.

Hackage probably fails to build the Haddock documentation since Miniball itself is missing. The documentation can be viewed at

Miniball itself is copyright 1999-2013, Bernd Gärtner.

The current version has only been tested with version 3.0 of Miniball.

Changes in version

  • Improve allocation before FFI call. Good speedup for short calls (factor 3 for 100000 points in R^3).
