Here's part of what the README file says:

PDL -- the package

The perlDL project aims to turn perl into an efficient numerical language for
scientific computing. The PDL module gives standard perl the ability to
COMPACTLY store and SPEEDILY manipulate the large N-dimensional data sets which
are the bread and butter of scientific computing. e.g. $a=$b+$c can add two
2048x2048 images in only a fraction of a second.

The aim is to provide tons of useful functionality for
scientific and numeric analysis.

Check the pdl web site at http://pdl.perl.org for more information.

Thats about all I know about it.  Gtk-Perl complained when it was missing.  Its
need by perl programs that do pixel manipulation. Some version of it may have
been installed with my slackware distribution (7.0), but I totally deleted my
original perl installation and installed perl 5.6.0.  So, I've had to install
many perl modules that other people may already have.
