I can't seem to find any way to get the perl PDL to run on my HP laptop. I was able to download the source from the perl.pdl.org and compile it and run in on my desktop, but the same procedures don't work on my laptop.

Has anyone put the PDL in a pet install file, or a handy sfs file?

Not sure in Slacko, as I don't use it, but it should work if you install it like this:
- Make sure you have the devxx.sfs up and running (that will give you a full perl).
- Install cpanp (if is not there) which allows you to install modules from the terminal.
- Run this:
cpanp -i PDL

It will ask you what to do with the missing modules (if any); choose option 3 ("install all" or something similar) and let it handle the installation...
- Now just wait and then run "pdl" to start pdl shell. Will see something like this:
perlDL shell v1.357

ReadLines, NiceSlice, MultiLines  enabled
Reading PDL/default.perldlrc...
Found docs database /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.12.3/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/PDL/pdldoc.db
Type 'help' for online help
Type 'demo' for online demos
Loaded PDL v2.006 (supports bad values)

Note: AutoLoader not enabled ('use PDL::AutoLoader' recommended)


Main idea of this: Use cpanp for install perl modules into a full Perl.

Otherwise (when it just cant be the case because missing free space or wanna have more control over Perl), use Perlbrew.
