Yes and no.

It provides a moderately good container for data on the Perl side of things, but thats about it. PDL::PP just wasn't cut out for the job I want to accomplish.

PDL::PP is really good at making rich, perlish interfaces. However, since I'm generating the glue, I'm adhering to the principle of least surprise. That entails making all things coming from Fortran "feel" like they would in Fortran.

For example, in F9x calling a non- pure sub with an array that has too many dimensions is illegal. But calling a pure sub with an array with to many dims should thread. In F77, the array should be flattened.

As far as I can tell, PDL::PP can only do the second of these.

There are other issues with things like type-coercion messing up overloading.

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.
