Here is the pdl and PDL::Graphics::PLplot version information available
on my system.
software@...> perl -e 'use PDL; print "$PDL::VERSION\n"'
perl -MPDL::Graphics::PLplot -e \
'use PDL; print "$PDL::Graphics::PLplot::VERSION\n"'
I believe that blank result indicates that the 2.4.6 version of PDL
(which was released on 2010-04-20) somehow included a really old
release of PDL::Graphics::PLplot. I am quite surprised by this result
since you have been updating PDL::Graphics::PLplot for several years
since that old version and modern PLplot really requires your latest
version of PDL::Graphics::PLplot to work properly.
Just in case that blank result is not indicative of the
PDL::Graphics::PLplot version in PDL what command do you recommend for
reliably obtaining the PDL::Graphics::PLplot version?
Here are my current pdl-related results for PLplot on Debian testing.
software@...> grep -i pdl cmake.out
-- PDL_VERSION = 2.4.6
-- PDL version >= 2.4.1 and PDL::Graphics::PLplot found.
-- PDL_PLPLOT_VERSION =

Differing stdout :
The last was generated by the test_diff_psc target. Note, the above
cmake.out WARNING is because PDL_PLPLOT_VERSION (found with something
close to the above perl command) is blank, and that is why our build
system skipped (by design) so many examples in this comparison that
depend on the PDL::Graphics::PLplot version >= 0.47.
It appears cpan.org is currently down, but once that is back up my
next step is to attempt to build your latest PDL::Graphics::PLplot
package and superimpose it on the system installation of PDL. If
there is some later version of your work that is not at cpan.org, let
me know where it is, and I would be happy to test it.
