To quote from "PDL (``Perl Data Language'') 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"

It is found in /usr/local/bin/perldl on the linux machines, so if you have /usr/local/bin in your path, you need only type perldl.

But before using it, you must run the following command, or put it in your .cshrc file.

 setenv PERL5LIB /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi/
