43 <para><application>PDL</application> (Perl Data Language) gives
44 standard <application>Perl</application> the ability to compactly store
45 and quickly manipulate the large N-dimensional data arrays common to
46 scientific computing. <application>PDL</application> turns
47 <application>Perl</application> into an array-oriented, numerical language
48 similar to such commercial packages as <application>IDL</application>
49 and <application>MatLab</application>. One can write simple
50 <application>Perl</application> expressions to manipulate entire numerical
51 arrays all at once.</para>
52
53 <para><application>PDL</application> provides extensive numerical and
54 semi-numerical functionality with support for two- and three-dimensional
55 visualisation as well as a variety of I/O formats. The goal is to allow
56 <application>PDL</application> to interact with a variety of external
57 numerical packages, graphics and visualisation systems. Easy interfacing
58 to such systems is one of the core design features of
59 <application>PDL</application>.</para>

83 <bridgehead renderas="sect3">PDL Dependencies</bridgehead>
84
85 <para><application>PDL</application> is a collection of over 90
86 <application>Perl</application> modules. Some of these modules require
87 additional libraries, packages and/or <application>Perl</application>
88 modules for full functionality. Listed below are the modules which require
89 additional software or configuration. If you don't need a particular
90 module's functionality, you don't need to install its dependencies. The
91 dependency tree for each module is listed downward, meaning you'll need to
92 start at the bottom of a module's tree and work up. The dependencies are
93 listed in the same order as they are in the
94 <filename>DEPENDENCIES</filename> file, found in the package source
95 tree.</para>
96
97 <para>This package (and many of the dependency packages) requires a Fortran
98 compiler for full functionality of all the different modules. The
99 <command>gfortran</command> compiler installed with the current BLFS
100 version of <application>GCC</application> (&gcc-version;) will not work. If
101 you want to compile the parts of this package that require a Fortran
102 compiler, you'll need to install a
103 <application>GCC</application>-3.x.x version of Fortran. The
104 <application>GCC</application> developers recommend using Fortran from
105 <application>GCC</application>-3.4.6. You can find specific instructions
106 to install a <application>GCC</application>-3.4.6 compiler on the
107 <ulink url="&blfs-wiki;/gcc3">BLFS
108 Wiki</ulink>. <!-- Alternatively, if you have a need to install
109 <xref linkend="gcc3"/>, you can add the Fortran compiler to the list of
110 compilers installed in those instructions. Don't forget to put the
111 directory containing the <command>{g,f}77</command> commands at the
112 beginning of your <envar>PATH</envar> environment variable before
113 beginning the compilation.--> </para>
