32 <para><application>PDL</application> (Perl Data Language) gives
33 standard <application>Perl</application> the ability to compactly store
34 and quickly manipulate the large N-dimensional data arrays common to
35 scientific computing. <application>PDL</application> turns
36 <application>Perl</application> into an array-oriented, numerical language
37 similar to such commerical packages as <application>IDL</application>
38 and <application>MatLab</application>. One can write simple
39 <application>Perl</application> expressions to manipulate entire numerical
40 arrays all at once.</para>
41
42 <para><application>PDL</application> provides extensive numerical and
43 semi-numerical functionality with support for two- and three-dimensional
44 visualisation as well as a variety of I/O formats. The goal is to allow
45 <application>PDL</application> to interact with a variety of external numerical
46 packages, graphics and visualisation systems. Easy interfacing to such systems
47 is one of the core design features of <application>PDL</application>.</para>

72
73 <para><application>PDL</application> is a collection of over 90
74 <application>Perl</application> modules. Some of these modules require
75 additional libraries and/or <application>Perl</application> modules for full
76 functionality. Listed below are the modules which require additional software
77 or configuration. If you don't need a particular module's functionality, you don't
78 need to install its dependencies. The dependency tree for each module is listed
79 downward, meaning you'll need to start at the bottom of a module's tree and work
80 up. The dependencies are listed in the same order as they are in the
81 <filename>DEPENDENCIES</filename> file, found in the package source tree.</para>
