NAME

PDL::CCS::Utils - Low-level utilities for compressed storage sparse PDLs

SYNOPSIS

 use PDL;
 use PDL::CCS::Utils;

 ##---------------------------------------------------------------------

FUNCTIONS

Non-missing Value Counts

nnz

  Signature: (a(N); int+ [o]nnz())

Get number of non-zero values in a PDL $a(); For 1d PDLs, should be equivalent to:

 $nnz = nelem(which($a!=0));

For k>1 dimensional PDLs, projects via number of nonzero elements to N-1 dimensions by computing the number of nonzero elements along the the 1st dimension.

nnz does not process bad values. It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

nnza

  Signature: (a(N); eps(); int+ [o]nnz())

Like nnz() using tolerance constant $eps(). For 1d PDLs, should be equivalent to:

 $nnz = nelem(which(!$a->approx(0,$eps)));

nnza does not process bad values. It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

Encoding Utilities

ccs_encode_pointers

  Signature: (indx ix(Nnz); indx N(); indx [o]ptr(Nplus1); indx [o]ixix(Nnz))

General CCS encoding utility.

Get a compressed storage "pointer" vector $ptr for a dimension of size $N with non-missing values at indices $ix. Also returns a vector $ixix() which may be used as an index for $ix() to align its elements with $ptr() along the compressed dimension.

The induced vector $ix->index($ixix) is guaranteed to be stably sorted along dimension $N():

 \forall $i,$j with 1 <= $i < $j <= $Nnz :

  $ix->index($ixix)->at($i) < $ix->index($ixix)->at($j)   ##-- primary sort on $ix()
 or
  $ixix->at($i)             < $ixix->at($j)               ##-- ... stable

ccs_encode_pointers does not process bad values. It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

Decoding Utilities

ccs_decode_pointer

  Signature: (indx ptr(Nplus1); indx proj(Nproj); indx [o]projix(NnzProj); indx [o]nzix(NnzProj))

General CCS decoding utility.

Project indices $proj() from a compressed storage "pointer" vecotr $proj(). If unspecified, $proj() defaults to:

 sequence($ptr->dim(0))

ccs_decode_pointer does not process bad values. It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

ccs_dump_which

  Signature: (indx which(Ndims,Nnz); SV *HANDLE; char *fmt; char *fsep; char *rsep)

Print a text dump of an index PDL to the filehandle HANDLE, which default to STDUT. $fmt is a printf() format to use for output, which defaults to "%d". $fsep and $rsep are field-and record separators, which default to a single space and $/, respectively.

ccs_dump_which does not process bad values. It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.
