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

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