Submission + - Perl Data Language 2.4.10, multi-thread support (

tonique writes: "Perl Data Language (PDL) 2.4.10 has been released. Highlights of the new release are automatic multi-thread support, support for data structures larger than 2 GB and POSIX threads support. Also available is the first draft of the new PDL book. PDL is especially suitable for scientists.

For those not in the know, "PDL gives standard Perl the ability to compactly store and speedily manipulate the large N-dimensional data arrays which are the bread and butter of scientific computing." Commercial languages used for the same purpose include MATLAB and IDL."
