16:58 chm jberger, mohawk, sivoais:  Great work on the Alien::Base.  Changes are coming faster than I can follow them.
16:58 jberger chm: indeed, that's true for me too :-P
16:59 chm azawawi:  I would recomment Reply as the basis as well.  I'm planning to convert pdl2 to use Reply
16:59 chm I believe it will allow for a much simpler interface for shell-like behavior.
17:01 chm azawawi, sivoais:  Regarding plotting interfaces, markdown, and iPython...
17:01 chm The historical challenge is that PDL was missing a single, cross-platform implementation.
17:02 chm We're still at the stage of a number of solid modules with Prima, Gnuplot, and even Simple as a "baby" interface.
17:03 chm o/ jberger
17:03 chm I am not able to read logs consistently so this is my first chance to catch up.
17:04 chm Joel, do you use any PDL at the moment or mostly python/NumPy?
17:05 jberger sadly I get to do none
17:05 chm azawawi:  Of the plotting tools, I would say that Prima and Gnuplot are the most portable with Prima
17:05 jberger I work in Python, but dont even do enough numerical work to need numpy
17:06 chm having an edge in portability due to the full perl implementation.  Gnuplot wins in familiarity for folks
17:06 chm using gnuplot already.
17:06 chm jberger: I hope the work is interesting/challenging without numerics.
17:08 chm My current push for PDL is to resolve the 64bit index bug in time for the next debian cutoff in Nov.
17:08 chm Tick, tick, tick...
17:08 jberger its been an interesting job I guess, learning some of the kind of "high finance" things that we do, but mostly I'm writing a GUI that meets the needs of some very picky clients
17:09 jberger go chm go!
17:09 chm Ah, the pleasures of GUI programming.  :-)
17:10 chm Well, got to put some laundry in.  Will be around #pdl today so will try to pick any threads periodically through the day.
17:10 chm o/
