00:14 sivoais my uc experience has been limited to the Atmel AVRs

16:20 vicash Do PDL's operations get vectorized automatically by the local compiler or are specific compiler options used based on the architecture it is compiling on ? The reason I ask is that if I create a PAR package on my machine which may have say an Intel i7 core and want to run it on an AMD machine will the vectorized operations work in the same way.
17:53 sivoais The module I put together an Alien:: package for depends on GMP. I happened to not have headers for it on this machine.
17:53 sivoais I'm wondering what I should do to make the install easier given that there is an Alien::GMP module.
18:01 sivoais I see this approach <https://metacpan.org/source/PLICEASE/Alien-Liba​rchive-0.10/inc/Alien/Libarchive/ModuleBuild.pm>
18:04 sivoais actually, I'll link this over in #xs ;-)
19:20 vicash sivoais: is there an Alien::GMP package already or are you writing it ?
19:58 sivoais yes, there is. it is not based on Alien::Base, but I can make it work
19:58 sivoais i think
20:04 vicash Alien::Base allows you to use multiple repositories. i would recommend that approach
20:04 vicash that way if your software relies on a particular version of GMP you can stick to that while Alien::GMP might rely on anything different.
20:05 vicash this way for example if you want your library to use patched versions of GMP then your software will be considered more secure etc.
20:06 vicash or similar.
20:59 sivoais Ah
21:16 sivoais well, in this case, it already downloads from FTP ;-) <https://metacpan.org/source/RSI​MOES/Alien-GMP-v0.0.6/Build.PL>
21:16 sivoais But it's going for 5.0.4 specifically
21:20 vicash do you want to use anotehr version ?
21:27 sivoais no, not really. I'm going to file a bug report just so that the issue is stored somewhere
21:27 sivoais anything over 5.0.0  is fine
21:48 sivoais nice! <https://github.com/rsimoes/Alien-G​MP/issues/1#issuecomment-30969150>
