PDL How to create/initialise a large byte piddle directly.by BrowserUk (Pope)
|on Oct 19, 2006 at 21:44 UTC||Need Help??|
BrowserUk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I can initialise a large 2D piddle using zeroes and then convert that to a byte piddle:
I can then undef $a to discard the default Double piddle and recover space
And I can do that all in one line:
but it appears as if the latter still creates the 8-times bigger intermediary before automatically discarding it.
Is there a way to create a large 2D byte piddle directly?
I'm just starting to find my way around the PDL docs and I seem to be missing this example.
