The directory containing the IDL UIO routines should be added to the IDL variable !PATH. This could be done by a program segment in the startup procedure, like:
; --- Try to determine language --- if (n_elements(!X.TICKV) eq 150) then langua='WAVE' else langua='IDL' ; ; --- Add user IDL directory to search path --- if (langua eq 'IDL') then begin &$ addpath=expand_path('+$UIOPATH/idl') &$ endif else begin &$ addpath='/home/supas024/uio/idl' + ':' + '/home/supas024/wave' &$ endelse if strtrim(addpath,2) ne '' then !path=addpath+':'+!path delvar, addpathIt is reasonable to include the UIO initialization in the startup procedure as e.g.:
; --- Initialize uio-routines --- uio_init, progrm='by hand'
IDL can handle the conversion types
ieee_4 is the default and should be used as a standard.
Attention: The IDL type ``long'' corresponds to the standard Fortran type
``integer''. The IDL types ``byte'' and ``integer'' are not known in standard
Fortran and are therefore transformed to the IDL type ``long'' before writing
(in the IDL routine
Be aware of: The parsing and interpretation of the entry headers can only be done by scalar operations which are comparatively slow in IDL.
