[The IDL Data Point][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][GRIB routines] about the new GRIB routines, including helper routines to make accessing GRIB routines easier.
