I'd get Ronn Kling's wonderful new book _Calling C
from IDL_. Everything you ever wanted to know in there. :-)
You can order directly from Ronn:

Add the directories to your !PATH system variable
in exactly that order.

You don't have to, but many people do. The !Path
system variable obtains its information from the
IDL_PATH environment variable.
