On my web site (www.rlkling.com) I have a place for modified IDL
routines that people create.  RSI knows about this and has given me the
OK for posting them.  The only restricition they asked for was that the
routines be renamed with the authors initials as the first two
characters.  This will avoid any confusion with their tech support.

To name an example: just last week I eliminated an

If you send it to me I will post it as MSVELOVECT.PRO !

I cannot promise that, but RSI does know about the site and I as new
routines are added I will let them know that they are there.
