Just because both classes are a representation of a matrix doesn't mean any method will work on it; you can't ask a cat to bark or a dog to meow.

Well, you can. Just not going to do anything as you've discovered.

Unless you've got a reason for switching back and forth you're going to need to pick a representation and use that one; sounds like for your particular application between your two choices Math::MatrixReal may support more of the operations you need natively. Otherwise your choices are to implement what you need using PDL (I'm not finding easy hits looking for "pdl matrix diagonalize"), or convert from the one to the other, get the diagonal, then convert back. The first option's likely to be more efficient, but if you only need to go back and forth once or twice it may be worth the performance hit to not have to bother reimplementing things.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
