The IDL Data Point is a new IDL site written by ITT VIS engineer Mark Piper. It promises to “provide technical, programmatic examples of using IDL” including “information and examples on topics where there’s a lack, like using IDL 8 (aka New) Graphics and the IDL workbench”. There is already an article about the new GRIB routines, including helper routines to make accessing GRIB routines easier.

"... But I've always wanted a thorough, concise, up-to-date overview of the the IDL language and its vast capabilities. This is exactly what Mike's book provides in 464 very informative pages... Highly recommended!"
I'm a software developer focusing on high-performance computing and visualization in scientific programming. I work mostly in IDL, but occasionally use C, CUDA, and Python.
I currently work for the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) at the Mauna Loa Solar Observatory. Previously, I worked for Tech-X Corporation, where I was the main developer for GPULib, a library of IDL bindings for GPU accelerated computation routines.
