Marshall Perrin's IDL CodeHere 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 TricksThis page just contains my IDL software. You have to look elsewhere for my IDL tips and tricks page.
IRCAL data reduction pipelineSee my IRCAL page for my IRCAL data reduction pipeline, finding chart tool, and a few other useful utilities.
IDL - MYSQLUsing 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.
- IDL-MySQL database interface. There's a README file and some code examples in the tar file, too.
