NAMEPDL::Dbg - functions to support debugging of PDL scripts
use PDL; use PDL::Dbg;
$c = $a->slice("5:10,2:30")->px->diagonal(3,4); PDL->px;
DESCRIPTIONThis packages implements a couple of functions that should come in handy when debugging your PDL scripts. They make a lot of sense while you're doing rapid prototyping of new PDL code, let's say inside the perldl shell.
pxPrint info about a piddle (or all known piddles)
perldl> PDL->px perldl> $b += $a->clump(2)->px('clumptest')->sumover perldl> $a->px('%C (%A) Type: %T')This function prints some information about piddles. It can be invoked as a class method (e.g. "PDL->px" ) or as an instance method (e.g. "$pdl->px($arg)"). If
The output of px will be determined by the default formatting string that is passed to the "info" method (unless you pass a string containing "%" to px when invoking as an instance method, see above). This default string is stored in $PDL::Dbg::Infostr and the default output format can be accordingly changed by setting this variable. If you do this you should also change the default title string that the class method branch prints at the top of the listing to match your new format string. The default title is stored in the variable $PDL::Dbg::Title.
varsAlias for "px"
BUGSThere are probably some. Please report if you find any. Bug reports should be sent to the PDL mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org.
