Tools for distributing IDL applications

single page | use frames    directories     project statistics


The dist_tools package is a collection of routines useful in several areas when creating applications for distribution to others.

The main directory ./ provides basic routines that are extremely valuable whenever distributing an application like the MG_SRC_ROOT routine, MGffPrefs class, or MG_IDLVERSION routine. The MG_LOG routine and MGffLogger class provide a mechanism for logging in applications.


To get the current version of the dist_tools, use a Subversion client to grab the current trunk of the repository. For example, to use the command line svn command from a system prompt:

$ svn co http://svn.idldev.com/dist_tools/trunk dist_tools



This directory contains the main dist_tools package routines for logging, preferences, and other miscellaneous routines useful in distributing applications.


The bindings directory provides a method for wrapping C routines with a DLM in a quick and nearly automatic manner using the MG_DLM class.
