Hi, my name is Fred, and I lurk more than I write (and, as you can tell
by this tardy reply, I don't read the
group every day).

I have been a user of IDL since 1981 (on a PDP 11-34). I still use IDL
4.0.1 on a VAX (but not often);
my main machines are an alpha/VMS (5.1.1) and a PC/LINUX (5.3).

I have found many useful tricks, hints, and suggestions in this
newsgroup. This is where I found David
Fanning's book and Craig Markwardt's MPFIT (thanks!).

You can find my contributions to the IDL software at

To those who have more to share than I, keep up the good work.

I live on Lawnguyland, NY, and my dog is Cosmos.
