07:20 CQ joined #pdl
07:21 CQ hello, I need to do vector operations (basic stats: average, stdev, etc) ... is pdl the right tool? the data is in sqlite with perl data handling at the front end
07:41 mohawk cq, from what i gather, pdl is unbelievably high performance if you go with the right pdl idiom
07:41 mohawk there is definitely a stats module
07:41 mohawk i don't know of a pdl sql module yet
07:41 mohawk want to make a PDL::IO::SQL? :-)
07:43 CQ mohawk: I'm trying ot do LESS work not MORE ... :)
07:43 CQ I don't need the high performance, as the data is small (30k items)
07:43 CQ I just need the functionality
07:45 mohawk it has that
09:33 sivoais kmx has something, iirc
09:34 sivoais for SQL

21:51 mohawk there ya go
21:54 mohawk sivoais, seems to me we need to a) document any oddities in badval behaviour; b) fix any genuine bugs (obviously); c) deprecate and start warning on pathological things like badvalue(0)
21:54 mohawk sivoais, chm, what do you think?
22:05 sivoais mohawk: agreed. But I wouldn't go all the way with (c) just yet
22:05 sivoais it should be something that can be compiled out (use constant...)
22:08 sivoais "Hey, you're changing the default value of badvalue(). Did you mean setvaltobad()? If you want this, make sure that this value will not be the result of a calculation. See PDL::Bad for more information. To disable this warning, set $PDL::Bad::set_badvalue_warning = 0"
