Hi chexmix,

If you are interested in Astronomy and Perl, you might also be interested in learning about the Perl Data Language (PDL). It was created by Karl Glazebrook, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Johns Hopkins University. To have an idea of what you can do with PDL, I recommend you to have a look at PDL -- Scientific Programming in Perl and to the nodes The Perl Data Language (PDL): A Quick Reference Guide and RFC: PDL Cheat Sheet.

    Many thanks. I've looked at PDL a little in the past but have sort of tended to shunt into the pile of "things to look at when I know more." I didn't know that its creator (Glazebrook) was the one who IDd the "cosmic latte" overall color of the universe! :^) PDL gets me to wondering in what directions I will eventually need to re-up and strengthen my math skills in order to become a better Perl person. That's a whole other kettle of stuff ... - GB
