13:58 gtodd ..... PDL::Scilab     Manual: A guide for Scilab users    .... :-\
13:59 gtodd is there a --->     PDL::R     Manual: A guide for R users
14:01 gtodd pdl2 shell is helping ... I wish command/variable completion worked a bit better (vim-ishly) ... but I miss or end up spending time findling out how to to R stuff
14:01 gtodd a lot :)
14:03 gtodd and it's easy to core dump
14:06 gtodd trying to print outside of a range does that (instead of an error message)
14:30 gtodd http://paste.scsys.co.uk/272712  <---
14:36 gtodd http://paste.scsys.co.uk/272716
14:36 gtodd Of course I may be using PDL when R would be better for what I'm doing.  For example, R easily detects if the first line in a text based data file is a header and assigns variable names (or it can be told to do that) - it's still less automagical with PDL for me.  PDL is appealing since it is Perl  but perhaps I'd be better off using Perl<->R modules to get R to do what I want (which is mostly just massaging data-sets base
14:37 gtodd the core dump is at http://paste.scsys.co.uk/272716
14:37 gtodd and mentions pdl_writebackdata_affineinternal ()  ...
14:38 gtodd from Slices.so ....
14:43 gtodd I guess the C module is picky about trying:  p $z->(:35) when  p $z->info says:  PDL: Double D [35,17]   I forgot 35 = means 0-34  - which must be an honest mistake to make in a REPL/shell setting :)  anyway I would have expected a helpful perl-ish error message :-P
