03:00 webart joined #pdl
05:47 * webart awkwardly uses perl and pdl to generate sets of random numbers between bounds
05:48 webart ... instead of R 8-}
13:32 chm joined #pdl
14:41 sivoais hehe
15:15 webart because it was less awkward than learning to program R (or what happens more frequently) finding a perfect package that did what I wanted ... I found plyr ... but then I found Nice::R ... and piddles are awesomely powerful little things
15:15 webart underrated
15:18 webart p $some_piddle * 1.03 # <-- augment every element  of a liist by 3%
15:18 webart ok that's not a good example of PDL's ppwer :-)
15:21 webart but combine that convenience with perl glue and well it's magnificent
21:06 webart ?data.table
21:08 webart help Data::Table
22:24 jberger webart yeah, that concept is really spectacular
22:25 jberger Takes a while to grok how to think like that, but once you do it is really powerful
