in thread Performance problem with Clone Method

there are so many ways to skin this cat I'm surprised people worry about the issue of column/row operations in PDL.

The problem is not "can it be done with PDL", more "do you gain anything by using PDL to do it"? Ie. Is it more efficient?

This iterates through all the row and column permutations of a 10x10 matrix in 82 seconds:

#! perl -slw use strict; use Data::Dump qw[ pp ]; use Time::HiRes qw[ time ]; #$Data::Dump::WIDTH = 1000; use Algorithm::Combinatorics qw[ permutations ]; my @a = map[ 10 *$_ .. 10 *$_ + 9 ], 0 .. 9; ## rows my $start = time; my $perms = permutations( [ 0 .. 9 ] ); while( my $p = $perms->next ) { my @perm = @a[ @$p ]; } printf "All row permutations took %f seconds\n", time - $start; ## cols $start = time; $perms = permutations( [ 0 .. 9 ] ); while( my $p = $perms->next ) { my @perm = map[ @{$_}[ @$p ] ], @a; } printf "All column permutations took %f seconds\n", time - $start; __END__ C:\test> All row permutations took 17.198000 seconds All column permutations took 65.284842 seconds

The OP mentioned matrices of "hundreds x hundreds".

As I understand the brute force algorithm for the Subgraph Isomorphism Problem, it requires performing all the row permutations for all the column permutations of the smaller of the two adjacency matrix graphs for every equal sized subgraph of the larger adjacency matrix. Ullmann trims the tree somewhat, but essentially still requires many of the iterations and all the transformations to be performed.

I've no doubts that this can be done with PDL; I just wonder if you gain much performance?

    I read this thread through 3-4 times before I "got it", which is that PDL is really a floating point engine that makes things like singular value decomposition a one liner.

    And that back in 1983, the kind of programming the OP is interested in would have been written in assembler and/or C, and so bitwise efficiency is to be optimized here.
