19:26 vicash hi. i am trying to access a PDL column 0 using NiceSlice like this:  $mypdl(0:-1, (0))  and I get "slice has too many dims (indexes dim 1; highest is 0) when I use PDL::Graphics::Prima to plot the column
19:27 vicash i am not having the problem with PGPLOT though
19:39 vicash actually i found the problem..
19:40 vicash is there a way to embed the Window created by PGPLOT or PLplot into another Window application ?
20:36 sivoais vicash: I think it could be possible to use XEmbed, but I've never done that. See if it can be used with <http://tools.suckless.org/tabbed/>.
20:36 vicash sivoais: have you used PLplot ?
20:36 vicash PDL::Graphics::PLplot ?
20:37 sivoais only a little. I prefer gnuplot
20:37 vicash so PDL::Graphics::Gnuplot is better ?
20:38 vicash i am just having trouble keeping the PDL::Graphics::PLplot from crashing when I close my Prima app. it always segfaults in the XS portion
20:38 sivoais I just think gnuplot looks better (probably because I'm used to it)
20:38 vicash ok
20:39 vicash i am using gnuplot for a C++ app already... but was trying to write a Perl + PDL app and thought to use one of the plotting libs
20:46 vicash sivoais: you're right. i just ran the gnuplot demo.pl with P::G::Gnuplot and it does look nicer
22:16 mohawk PDL's Example/InlinePdlpp/Module/Makefile.PL#L1 uses old-style WriteInlineMakefile not new WriteMakefile
22:16 mohawk (old = deprecated in 2002 ;-)
22:18 sivoais yeah, PDL needs lots of updating. I submitted a "bug" earlier this week and wanted to fix it, but I found the test suite was handrolling TAP output O_O
22:18 sivoais instead of using Test::More
22:19 mohawk email sent to CHM couple of hours ago
22:19 mohawk jesus h christ
22:19 mohawk i wonder if/when chm will make the dev release he promised ;-)
22:19 mohawk it seems he's very busy, is anyone else able to take some of the load off him for this?
22:20 sivoais probably the approach taken by p5p would be good. Dev releases are done by many people
22:21 mohawk having one point of failure (or life-getting-in-the-way) seems like a non-ideal situation
22:21 mohawk well volunteered sivoais
22:21 sivoais because all that work put into making a good release shouldn't be put on just one person. It's too taxing.
22:21 sivoais :-D
22:22 sivoais hahaha, I guess I could volunteer, but I'll need some handholding to start. I don't want to mess up.
22:22 sivoais oh, I'm working on that fix for Alien::Base on win32 right now :-)
22:23 mohawk damn, good work
22:24 mohawk i felt ok about asking you to take care of the a-b issue since i took care of the a-lept* issue - have you looked at that?
22:25 sivoais I did. I just need to run the tests and I'll make a release
22:25 mohawk awesome
22:47 sivoais vicash: use ->unpdl ? (re: your e-mail)
22:48 sivoais ah, got the second e-mail now, disregard :-P
22:49 vicash sivoais: thanks. yea i figured i should read the docs :)
22:58 mohawk it'll never catch on
