Overview

Gnudl (GNU Data Language, pronounced NOODLE or GUH NEW DLE or GUH NEW DEE EL) is a high-level language and environent designed to allow flexible and powerful manipulation and plotting of data.

Gnudl is inspired by by the new availability of powerful free software tools; most notably the GNU Extension Language guile.

NOTE: Gnudl is in prototype stage, and in many ways it is just a throwaway project with good potential. This document describes the original design and also gives a tutorial for the current prototype release. The original design document does not bear much resemblance to gnudl and its goals as they have evolved. But as I go along I am only updating the tutorial.

Gnudl is also waiting for other technologies to become available. For example, guile is still in prerelease, and ghostscript is not very good for embedding.
