Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2013-10-14 13:28:52 UTC
I have upgraded perl-PDL on F21 and F20 to work with current Perl and GCC, so you can continue with perl-PDL-Graphics-PLplot.

I give a try and tests fail on undefined c_plwid symbol. There is a commit in upstream PDL git tree:

Subject: [PATCH] Graphics/PLplot/plplot.pd - address portability issue
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Define "c_plwid" to "c_plwidth" iff "plwidth" is

That fixes the issue. See <>.

But other tests keep failing because <plplot/pltplot.h> still declares c_plwid and the tests try to use it.
