I have written some IDL code to fit our data with a power law and it
works fine. Now I am trying to constrain the fit to use a specific value
of an exponent and only vary the factor in front of the expression. I
cannot get this to work properly, and I think it should be simpler
than I am making it out to be. I figure this is due to my relative
inexperience with the FUNCT keyword and how the data fitting is done
in IDL. Can anyone give me a hint for proceeding with performing a fit
to data that constrains one of the factors to a specific value?
Thanks for any pointers that are given.

we have modified the Curvefit from IDL, so that you can fix paramters
to a specified value.
The result is, that you need only one Fitfunction-procedure for your fit
instead of defing a new procedure for every set of free parameters.
Furthermore we corrected the curvefit-procedure in some points.
E.g. the errors for the parameters are now the correct ones, also you have a correlation matrix as output.
Send an email to me, if you want to get my curvefit-routine.
