in reply to RFC: PDL Cheat Sheet

This looks (after a minimal and superficial scan) extremely useful. Many thanks for producing this.

PDL is one of those modules that I have had several half hearted attempts at getting to grips with. A lack of a real need to do so, and many other interesting problems with which to occupy my mind that have less steep learning curves or more immediate satisfaction criteria mean that I have yet to make any real in roads to its possibilities.

This may just reduce the gradient of the learning curve, or facilitate such, that I actually use it to solve or progress one of the many stalled projects sitting on my back boiler.

    Hi BrowserUk

    I am glad you think you can use this "cheat sheet" :-)

    I completely agree with you in that PDL has a steep learning curve. This is why, I am preparing a set of tutorials to help people getting started with it. So, please, keep an eye open that more tutorials are forthcoming :-)

    Cheers,

      You know, looking back at some of my attempts at using PDL, a simple tie interface wrapper that allows you to treat piddles as normal arrays would greatly reduce the gradient?

      I realise that it probably wouldn't be as efficient, but it might allow an easier start and once you get stuff going, it should be fairly 'algorithmic' to convert it back to native calls to squeeze out that last ounze of performance.

      Anyway, I'll keep my eyes open for the tutorials. Thanks again.
