10:56 chm joined #pdl
10:58 chm mylo, sivoais: The perl NV warning is from PDL::Core and not from anything Prima.
11:00 chm Currently, PDL doesn't have support for long double data.  That a perl scalar like sqrt(2) would lose precision converted to a PDL: pdl(sqrt(2))
11:01 chm This mainly causes problems when floating point values are compared for exact equality.
11:01 chm However, there can also be issues in the minimum and maximum possible values,...
11:24 mohawk why is there a demo of prima that's not in the prima repo? :-)
11:25 mohawk sivoais, in my mind doug should definitely the in the org
11:25 mohawk i wish he'd answer my email and bring plplot up to date :-)
14:06 chm mohawk: The demo is for PDL::Graphics::Prima not Prima
14:13 mohawk chm, please read above PDL::Graphics::Prima instead of prima, both times
14:13 mohawk same question
14:14 mohawk why include a demo of an external module?
14:17 sivoais something to consider for the PDLA splitting
14:19 mohawk truth is i haven't really had a purge of the Demos yet in my splitting
14:20 mohawk but the correct way forward here is to have the demo live in the PDL::Graphics::Prima distro
14:20 mohawk and have perldl maybe know about such external demos and just say where they live now
17:17 mohawk https://github.com/timj/per​l-Astro-FITS-Header/pull/1
17:18 mohawk also, Gimp-Perl 2.31_07 is out; please try to break it
17:18 mohawk i'm calling it an RC
