new book on calling C from IDL



Everyone,

As I promised a few weeks ago I now have a book available on calling C from
IDL.  An abbreviated table of contents is:

Introduction................................................ 5

Chapter 1 Why use DLM's at all? ............................ 7

Chapter 2 DLM basics.........................................9

Chapter 3 A simple example................................. 15

Chapter 4 Sending and receiving Scalars................... 21

Chapter 5 Sending and receiving Arrays..................... 33

Chapter 6 Sending and receiving string scalars and arrays.. 41

Chapter 7 Sending and receiving structures................. 53

Chapter 8 Using Keywords................................... 63

Appendix A................................................. 71

Index ................................................... 73

This 74 page book is written for anyone that wants to be able to call C
programs from IDL. Using very simple examples written in C the reader will
be able to create and pass scalars, arrays, strings and structures back and
forth from IDL to C.The book is written for versions 5.3 and later of IDL,
but can be made to work with earlier versions with only minor modifications.

Nearly 1000 lines of source code are provided on the accompanying disk with
a makefile for UNIX platforms, com file for VMS, Visual C++ 6.0 project for
windows, and a Code Warrior 5 project for the Macintosh. This code can
either be received on a 3-1/2 inch floppy or CD.

You can order the book from www.rlkling.com and click the link to "Books on
IDL" at the top of the page.
