well, I would benchmark it against LAPACK, but I don't have the time, but if you want, you can do the benchmark and show me that I'm wrong :)
So, you haven't really benchmarked it against LAPACK. Yet, you imply that PDL is slower than not just one (LAPACK) but many other similar tools. You want to be shown you are wrong. Why don't you make the effort and show that what you are asserting is indeed true.

Fwiw, I do use Perl/PDL, and I don't use LAPACK, so it doesn't matter how fast LAPACK is.

    I don't make the effort because I don't have time, I'll stick to assertions in the meantime :)

    But you can make some benchmarks, not very complicated.
      So your time is more valuable than that of someone else? Who are you, Hillary Clinton? Hu Jintao? Gordon Brown? Stephen Hawking? Mahmud Gebril? What are you doing for the world that punkish isn't? How would you know? Such arrogance you show. For shame...
        oh c'mon don't exhagerate. I'm just busy at the moment. I would normally have done some benchmarks but I don't have my environment with me, I'm not home and I have very little free time which I use browsing Perlmonks to see what's up with Perl these days
      Then you need to prefix all your statements with I assert/assume, so everybody knows, and can ignore
