previously, it was possible to distinguish
between IDL and GDL using a test:
TAG_NAMES(/STRUCT,{a:0})
which was equal to '$truct' in GDL

but with the last CVS version, I cannot used
that anymore

What can we do ?

it is really useful to be able to distinguish
between both. Maybe you can add a field in !version ?

    I add in the CVS version a !GDL sysvar which can be used to
    switch between IDL and GDL:
    defsysv, '!gdl', exists=exists
    if exists then print, 'We use GDL' else print, 'We use IDL'
