       PDL::VectorValued - Utilities for vector-valued PDLs


        use PDL;
        use PDL::VectorValued;

        ## ... stuff happens


       PDL::VectorValued provides generalizations of some elementary PDL functions to higher-
       order PDLs which treat vectors as "data values".


         Signature: (v(N,M); [o]vu(N,MU))

       Drop-in replacement for broken uniqvec() which uses vv_qsortvec().  Otherwise copied from

       See also: PDL::VectorValued::Utils::vv_qsortvec, PDL::Primitive::uniqvec.

Higher-Order Run-Length Encoding and Decoding

       The following functions generalize the builtin PDL functions rle() and rld() for higher-
       order "values".

       See also: PDL::VectorValued::Utils::rlevec(), PDL::VectorValued::Utils::rldvec().

         Signature: (data(@vdims,N); int [o]counts(N); [o]elts(@vdims,N))

       Run-length encode a set of (sorted) n-dimensional values.

       Generalization of rle() and rlevec(): given set of values $data, generate a vector $counts
       with the number of occurrences of each element (where an "element" is a matrix of
       dimensions @vdims ocurring as a sequential run over the final dimension in $data), and a
       set of vectors $elts containing the elements which begin a run.  Really just a wrapper for
       clump() and rlevec().

       See also: PDL::Slices::rle, PDL::Ngrams::VectorValued::Utils::rlevec.

         Signature: (int counts(N); elts(@vdims,N); [o]data(@vdims,N);)

       Run-length decode a set of (sorted) n-dimensional values.

       Generalization of rld() and rldvec(): given a vector $counts() of the number of
       occurrences of each @vdims-dimensioned element, and a set $elts() of @vdims-dimensioned
       elements, run-length decode to $data().

       Really just a wrapper for clump() and rldvec().

       See also: PDL::Slices::rld, PDL::VectorValued::Utils::rldvec

Datatype Utilities

         Signature: vv_indx()

       Returns PDL::Type subclass used for indices.  If built with PDL < v2.007, this should
       return "PDL::long", otherwise "PDL::indx".

   Low-Level Functions
       Some additional low-level functions are provided in the PDL::VectorValued::Utils package.
       See PDL::VectorValued::Utils for details.
