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

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

     46    packages, graphics and visualisation systems. Easy interfacing to such systems
     47    is one of the core design features of <application>PDL</application>.</para>
