NAME

PDL::Perldl2::Plugin::NiceSlice - enable PDL NiceSlice syntax


DESCRIPTION

This plugin enables one to use the PDL::NiceSlice syntax in an instance of Devel::REPL such as the new Perldl2 shell, pdl2. Without the plugin, array slicing looks like this:


  pdl> use PDL;

  pdl> $a = sequence(10);
  $PDL1 = [0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9];

  pdl> $a->slice("2:9:2");
  $PDL1 = [2 4 6 8];

After the NiceSlice plugin has been loaded, you can use this:

  pdl> $a(2:9:2)
  $PDL1 = [2 4 6 8];


CAVEATS

PDL::NiceSlice uses Perl source preprocessing. If you need 100% pure Perl compatibility, use the slice method instead.
