    PDL 2.081 has just been released. Notable changes since 2.079:
    • Most of PDL::VectorValued has now been incorporated into PDL::Primitive
    • Bugfixes including the t_rot one in 683514, and to MatrixOps::inv, conv2d and MatrixOps::identity
    • inflateN added
    • allow [o] on OtherPars, which helps towards PDL::OpenCV

    The IRC channel (#pdl on irc.perl.org) is a great virtual place to come and ask questions, or just watch the GitHub messages flow by.

    Please give the new PDL a try and report problems.

    One of the requirements for the SRE at Google:

    - Experience programming in one or more of the following languages: C, C++, Java, Python, Go, Perl, or Ruby.

    Code is read many more times than it is written. -- Dave Cheney

    I'm happy to announce/invite you (well, the German/close to Frankfurt part of "you") to the Frankfurt Perl Workshop, a small one-day workshop without schedule, and mostly about Perl:

    Hallo zusammen,

    am Sonntag, dem 06. November 2022 veranstalten wir wieder den Frankfurter Perl Workshop. Der Workshop findet wie 2019 im Haus der Jugend statt.

    Wir treffen uns ab 10 Uhr zu Vorträgen, gerne über Perl. Das Programm liegt nicht fest, aber Vorankündigungen sind gerne willkommen! Ich habe hoffentlich ein oder zwei Themen, die ich vortragen kann.

    Für Kaffee und Stückchen ist gesorgt, mittags gehen wir wahrscheinlich Pizza essen.

    Datum: 06.11.2022

    Uhrzeit: ab 10 Uhr

    Ort: Haus der Jugend, Deutschherrenufer, Frankfurt

Stackoverflow blog: Why Perl is still relevant in 2022

    Girish Venkatachalam has blogged "Why Perl is still relevant in 2022" on July 6, 2022.

    No new info there - it is interesting only because it purports to be positive for perl, is published on SO, and showed up on my Google news feed.

    The author seems to have somewhat dated knowledge of perl and no knowledge of raku.

                    "These opinions are my own, though for a small fee they be yours too."

    During the last days, we reviewed and cut the video recordings. The recordings are now available on the media platform of the CCC:

    https://media.ccc.de/c/gpw2022

    Some of the presentations are not yet published - we need to work on the video some more..

    Again, thanks to our speakers, our sponsors and everybody else for the great conference. Next year we'll hopefully meet again in Frankfurt am Main in person!

    Howdy!

    I've been working on the development of a Prospectus for the TPF as a way of communicating all the good work that TPF is doing to support Perl, and you can read all about it here. There were lots of people who worked on this, and I'm really thrilled with the way it turned out.

    PS I'll be at TPRC in Houston next week -- maybe I'll see some of you there. :)

    Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

    PDL 2.079 has just been released. Notable changes since 2.078: Future plans, in something like intended order:
    • Restructure the TriD stuff so there is a consistent API between OpenGL and X3D/VRML - see 11143037 for more
    • fix more open GitHub issues
    • add event-handling hooks for ndarrays - see PDL::Dataflow for more
    • finish the independent C interface for making PDL usable from e.g. Python - see https://github.com/PDLPorters/pdl/issues/358 for more
    • “loop fusion” techniques to maximise locality of computation, minimising data’s trips through the “straw” between CPU and main RAM
    • use OpenCL or other means to also utilise GPUs if available - see https://github.com/PDLPorters/pdl/issues/349 for more on this and the above

    Please give the new release a try and report problems.

    I've just (hopefully) finished tweaking the website at https://pdl.perl.org/, using Joel Berger's JavaScript-based update, enabling HTTPS by hosting on GitHub Pages. The search now uses MetaCPAN which has a neat autocomplete feature.

    I've probably missed some stuff so please have a nose around and open issues on https://github.com/PDLPorters/pdlporters.github.com/issues or use the “Website issues” link in the sidebar (which links to that) - or reply on here!

    As usual, please give the new website a try and report problems.

    PDL 2.078 has just been released. Notable changes since 2.077:
    • TriD::GL now more resilient and exceptions don't leave GL broken
    • Bugfixes including to NiceSlice
    • demo 3d now shows off a 3D Earth (with accurate shading), and also a 3D molecule-like graph evolving over time
    • The pdl struct now has room for a single value (or if not complex long double, several values of smaller datatypes), avoiding extra memory-management for small ndarrays – but you don’t need to recompile installed modules

    The IRC channel (#pdl on irc.perl.org) is a great virtual place to come and ask questions, or just watch the GitHub messages flow by.

    Please give the new PDL a try and report problems.


Add a piece of Perl News
Title:
Text:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post, it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":


  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
