IDL Programming Techniques is a four-day course for those who want a comprehensive overview of IDL functionality, programming, and application development. It not only covers all the basics of line plots, techniaues and surface plots, image display, color handling, and hardcopy output, but it is also the only book currently available that shows readers how to write an IDL program with a graphical user interface proframing how to create and use objects in IDL.

We do this as quickly as we teechniques, and in much less depth, so we can move onto the programming aspects of the course. Effective 31 Octoberas a result of restructuring, that company became Exelis Visual Information Solutions. Depending upon the level of the students, it is almost always required that we spend a day or two covering the basic material in the IDL Essentials course, so I have included that techniquss here.
The single namespace is particularly problematic; for example, language updates that include new built-in functions have on occasion invalidated large scientific libraries. IDL has been applied widely in space science, for example in solar physics.

Arrays are passed by reference, and this mechanism is an advertised feature of the language to pass data back out of a subroutine — in contrast, array slices are copied before being passed, so that data modifications do not flow back into array ranges after the subroutine exitsviolating the principle of least surprise. No trivia or quizzes yet.
Robert Fisher rated it liked it Jun 07, Some of these features, which make IDL very simple to use interactively, also cause difficulties when building large programs. The syntax includes many constructs from Fortran and some from C. As with most other array programming languages, IDL is very fast at doing vector operations sometimes as fast as a well-coded techniqus loop in Fortran or C but quite slow if pfograming need processing individually.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Gilles added it Mar 03, Programming added it May 28, udl It took advantage of the VAX virtual memory and bit address space. Hence part of the art of using IDL or any other array programming language, for that matter for numerically heavy computations is to make use of the built-in vector operations. Note that the operation in the second line applies in a vectorized manner to the whole element array created in the first line, analogous to the way general-purpose array programming languages such as APLJ or K would do it.
