How can one not use "break", "continue", and "switch"? When you're
still adding basic programming control functionality in your 25 year old
product, it's hardly a wonder many packages require the latest version.
I for one will always be adding a "Requires v5.4" disclaimer.
P.S. IDL has turned 25! Did anyone throw a party? If not, next Friday
