Perl Data Language (PDL) is a set of extensions to Perl v5 that allows programmers to create scientific and other data intensive programming tasks. Perl's data structures are intended for small to medium sized analysis tasks - they embody simple data structures and include considerable behind-the-scenes magic for type conversion, variable size, and the like.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .plx file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
