Hello group,

I will be busy doing volume data processing the next six months, and I have decided to use narray for this purpose.

I'm will shurely have need to implement some functions in c, because otherwise it will take just too long, but I'd really love to make the basic structures in ruby.

So I will have to add custom functions to narray (e.g. right now I need an inplace abs! operator). This will be a lot of inplace operations, because when working with volume data even some gigs of memory are eaten up fast. And I think I will have to extend the fftw code, to for example include 
- inplace dfts, 
- saving of plans

So my question is, if anybody has advice on hacking narray. The code does not seem too complicated, but it is completely undocumented and I don't want to duplicate efforts. The other question is, if someone else has already achieved some of my goals, such that I could reuse components.

Thanks a lot,

Brian
