Recipes for IDL

IDL, short for Interactive Data Language, is a programming language used for data analysis.  It is not public but expensive, and so gets replaced by Python.  Traditionally, IDL is popular in astronomy and medical imaging.  In solar physics the large SolarSoft library makes IDL a must until the portage to Python is complete.
