00:26 mohawk nice!
00:27 mohawk let's get this nailed
15:45 spintronic joined #pdl
15:45 spintronic Hi guys. Is it possible to change directory within the pdl or pdl2 shell? I'm using it in Windows 7.
17:31 vicash spintronic: chdir ?
17:46 spintronic doesn't work in PDL v2.007_04
17:47 spintronic I'll upgrade and check again
17:59 spintronic nope chdir doesn't seem to exist
17:59 spintronic system('cd C:\\Temp'); doesn't work either.
18:20 vicash spintronic: try "use POSIX (); POSIX::chdir($mydir);"
18:21 vicash pdl2/perldl shells are just Devel::REPL so it should work. another way to test is first test in Devel::REPL by running re.pl
18:58 spintronic thank you very much!
18:58 spintronic it works
19:18 sivoais spintronic: if you need to chdir a lot in a program, File::chdir might be useful
20:22 sivoais jberger: conference on big data in Chi-town <http://www.bigdatatechcon.com/callforspeakers>
20:22 sivoais seems kinda corporate :-/
20:23 sivoais also a good post about Julia <https://khinsen.wordpress.com/20‚Äč15/06/18/another-look-at-julia/> via <https://trello.com/b/rbpEfMld/data-science>
21:52 chm joined #pdl
21:53 chm spintronic: chdir is a standard perl function, how did you determine it doesn't exist?
21:54 chm In the pdl2 and perldl shells, I often use the shell escape to list the current directory: pdl> #dir
21:55 chm Then I can do chdir 'dirname' which sets the directory.
