16:16 _sfiguser hello all!
16:19 sivoais hi!
16:27 _sfiguser what do you use to plot in pdl2 shell ?  i want to do plot as in octave...
16:27 _sfiguser what should i do ?
16:31 sivoais gnuplot is pretty good. There's is <https://metacpan.org/pod/PDL::Graphics::Gnuplot>. It's not too complex, but if you want to go even simpler, there is <https://metacpan.org/pod/PDL::Graphics::Simple>
16:31 sivoais The P::G::Simple lets you not care about the backend that is used.
16:33 sivoais Gnuplot is the backend that Octave uses too, so it will look similar.
16:36 sivoais _sfiguser: which OS are you running on?
16:39 _sfiguser ok ok sivoais debian
16:39 _sfiguser thanks sivoais
16:39 _sfiguser ok sivoais how can i do contour maps with Gnuplot  ?
16:40 _sfiguser i mean in pdl shell
16:44 sivoais _sfiguser: let me whip up an example :-) The docs need a bit more work.
16:45 _sfiguser ok thanks... i'll wait
17:18 sivoais _sfiguser: does this help? <https://gist.github.com/zmughal/2a7ae06ebac5d9f49f52b085a6633449>
17:18 sivoais one of the problems of using P::G::Gnuplot is that it assumes you know how to use Gnuplot itself, so you have to refer back to Gnuplot documentation
17:20 sivoais Where P::G::Gnuplot helps over just running Gnuplot itself is that it works efficiently over a pipe (by converting the PDL to a binary encoding) and you don't have to stop to run gnuplot then come back to Perl
17:22 _sfiguser thank you very much... ok so when in pdl i should use gnuplot...
17:22 _sfiguser thanks a lot really
17:25 sivoais :-)
