Marshall Perrin's IDL Code
Here are some IDL programs I've written. These are all open source, come with no guarantees whatsoever, and should be considered works in progress..
This page just lists a few of the highlights; you can also look at
my complete collection of routines, which also includes various useful routines I've gathered from others over the years.
IDL Tips and Tricks

IDL - MYSQL
Using the excellent IDL-MySQL
bridge routines by Mark Buie, I
developed an IDL interface to a MySQL database for tracking a large
set of targets and observations. I used this for the Herbig Ae/Be star
survey I conducted in my thesis, but I think the code is flexible
enough that it could be used for other things as well.
The code supports tracking an arbitrarily large list of properties
for objects (Spectral types, distances, radial velocities, whatever)
as well as spectral energy distributions in arbitrary sets of
wavelength and/or frequency; recording of observation logs; automatic
retrieval of photometry from Vizier; and a lot
of other stuff too.
The ATV FITS viewer ATV is and IDL fits
viewer, similar to DS9, originally developed by Aaron Barth. My
modified version available here has been
variously hacked on first by Henry Roe, to add support for 3D image
cubes, and then by myself to add overplotting of polarimetry vectors,
a new "Measure" mouse option, and a variety of other small features.
