PDL::RandVar::Sobol -- Sobol subrandom sequences VERSION
Current version is 1.0 SYNOPSIS
use PDL::RandVar::Sobol; $m = new PDL::RandVar::Sobol DESCRIPTION
Sobol subrandom sequences are used for more uniform sampling of a domain than normal random variables can achieve. They're described cur- sorily in W.H. Press's _Numerical_ _Recipes_, 2nd edition, section 7.7 (Cambridge Univ. Press), and this implementation is based on their description. History 0.01 4-Dec-2001 -- Basic functionality (CED) 0.1 11-Dec-2001 -- First fully functional version (CED) 1.0 9-Jan-2002 -- Tests out OK (CED) Author, license, no warranty This file copyright(C) 2001, 2002 Craig DeForest ( This software/documentation may be distributed under the same terms as PDL itself (license available at This package comes with NO WARRANTY. Bugs: Should have a way of reproducibly seeding the initial values. For now, you always get the same initial seed with every random variable -- this is the Wrong way to do it. FUNCTIONS
new Construct a new Sobol subrandom variable Signature: (See PDL::RandVar::new) $a = new PDL::RandVar::Sobol(<size>,<opt>); Options: range 2xn piddle containing min and max values for each dimension. $a = new PDL::RandVar::Sobol(2,{range=>pdl([$xmin,$xmax],[$ymin,$ymax])}); $xy = sample $a; perl v5.8.0 2002-05-16 Sobol(3)

pptemplate - script to generate Makefile.PL and PP file skeleton SYNOPSIS
# generate Makefile.PL and mymodule.pd in CWD pptemplate PDL::MyModule; DESCRIPTION
The pptemplate script is the easiest way to start a new module for PDL that contains PP code (see also PDL::PP). The usage is simply pptemplate modulename; As a result pptemplate will generate a perl Makefile for the new module (Makefile.PL) that contains the minimal structure to generate a module from PP code and also a skeleton file for your new module. The file will be called mymod.pd if you called "pptemplate" as pptemplate PDL::CleverAlgs::Mymod; I suppose you can work out the naming rule ";)". If not resort to experimentation or the source code. "pptemplate" will refuse to overwrite existing files of the same name to avoid accidents. Move them out of the way if you really want to scrap them. Options Currently there is only the "-i" option which switches "pptemplate" into the so called internal mode. It should only be used when you are starting a new module within the main PDL tree that is supposed to be part of the PDL distribution and the normal PDL build process, e.g. cd PDL/IO; mkdir Mpthree; cd Mpthree; pptemplate -i PDL::IO::Mpthree; BUGS
Maybe ";)". Feedback and bug reports are welcome. COPYRIGHT
