NAME
       PDL::Dbg - functions to support debugging of PDL scripts

SYNOPSIS
	      use PDL;
	      use PDL::Dbg;

	      $c = $a->slice("5:10,2:30")->px->diagonal(3,4);
	      PDL->px;

DESCRIPTION
       This packages implements a couple of functions that should come in handy when debugging
       your PDL scripts. They make a lot of sense while you're doing rapid prototyping of new PDL
       code, let's say inside the perldl shell.

FUNCTIONS
       px

       Print info about a piddle (or all known piddles)

	   perldl> PDL->px
	   perldl> $b += $a->clump(2)->px('clumptest')->sumover
	   perldl> $a->px('%C (%A) Type: %T')

       This function prints some information about piddles. It can be invoked as a class method
       (e.g. "PDL->px" ) or as an instance method (e.g.  "$pdl->px($arg)"). If

       invoked as a class method
	 it prints info about all piddles found in the current package (excluding "my" vari-
	 ables). This comes in quite handy when you are not quite sure which pdls you have
	 already defined, what data they hold , etc. "px" is supposed to support inheritance and
	 prints info about all symbols for which an "isa($class)" is true. An optional string
	 argument is interpreted as the package name for which to print symbols:

	   perldl> PDL->px('PDL::Mypack')

	 The default package is that of the caller.

       invoked as an instance method
	 it prints info about that particular piddle if $PDL::debug is true and returns the pdl
	 object upon completion. It accepts an optional string argument that is simply prepended
	 to the default info if it doesn't contain a "%" character. If, however, the argument
	 contains a "%" then the string is passed to the "info" method to control the format of
	 the printed information. This can be used to achieve customized output from "px". See
	 the documentation of "PDL::info" for further details.

       The output of px will be determined by the default formatting string that is passed to the
       "info" method (unless you pass a string containing "%" to px when invoking as an instance
       method, see above). This default string is stored in $PDL::Dbg::Infostr and the default
       output format can be accordingly changed by setting this variable.  If you do this you
       should also change the default title string that the class method branch prints at the top
       of the listing to match your new format string. The default title is stored in the vari-
       able $PDL::Dbg::Title.

       For historical reasons "vars" is an alias for "px".

       vars

       Alias for "px"

BUGS
       There are probably some. Please report if you find any. Bug reports should be sent to the
       PDL mailing list perldl@jachw.hawaii.edu.
