  • PDL/piddle development in Pugs and/or further tweaks to the Perl5 version of the library would be quite useful. The library is incredibly useful for scientific work, and its inclusion in core is one of the things I'm most looking forward to in Perl6.

      As far as I know, PDL development is pretty slow thesedays and I'm not sure that there is any Perl6/Pugs work in that area yet. Are there useful numerical/statistical C libraries that people are using instead?
      • The GNU Science Library may be worth looking at if you are thinking along the lines of a Perl wrapper. A few GSL pieces are used in PDL, but only a very limited subset. It would be nice to have a proper GSL binding for Perl - I don't know that there are any other bindings with the same functional coverage that this would provide.
