       PDL::Lvalue - declare PDL lvalue subs

       Declares a subset of PDL functions so that they can be used as lvalue subs. In particular,
       this allows simpler constructs such as

	 $a->slice(',(0)') .= 1;

       instead of the clumsy

	 (my $tmp = $a->slice(',(0)')) .= 1;

       This will only work if your perl supports lvalue subroutines (i.e. versions  >= v5.6.0).
       Note that lvalue subroutines are currently regarded experimental.

	use PDL::Lvalue; # automatically done with all PDL loaders


       test if routine is a known PDL lvalue sub

	 print "slice is an lvalue sub" if PDL::Lvalue->subs('slice');

       returns the list of PDL lvalue subs if no routine name is given, e.g.

	 @lvfuncs = PDL::Lvalue->subs;

       It can be used in scalar context to find out if your PDL has lvalue subs:

	 print 'has lvalue subs' if PDL::Lvalue->subs;
