Subject: PDL Has no signed 8-bit integer datatype

This bug should affect all platforms. I'm trying to improve on PDL::IO::HDF5, and HDF5 has both signed and unsigned byte (I8/U8) types. However, PDL only has unsigned byte types. Any PDLs created from HDF5 files (and potentially other data sources) will be incorrect if they are signed 8-bit integers. Suggest an extra PDL type of PDL_SB to go along with PDL_B (so as not to break existing code... though it _should_ be PDL_UB and PDL_B). I'm using PDL v2.4.3, Perl 5.8.8 (on MSWin32 if it matters) -- -Sir Woody Hackswell

I'm the original submitter... sorry. I finally found my PAUSE account. ;) Also suggest the following full list of datatypes (* means need to add): PDL_B * PDL_UB * PDL_S PDL_US PDL_L PDL_UL * PDL_LL PDL_ULL * PDL_F PDL_D The bigger question is do we do the datatypes consistently, and have PDL_B and PDL_UB (which breaks older progams), or maintain backwards compatibility and use PDL_B and PDL_SB? -Richard
