Just short intro: I am studying mathematics in
Darmstadt, Germany and this semester I am doing some
courses about image processing/correction. I heard
first about the language IDL and as I don't want to use
commercial software, if not necessary, i searched for
an open source clone... and I found one.
The problem is that it's very complicated to be able to
use GDL without beeing familiar with IDL. How do I call
files? What is the difference between @file, .r file,
.c file? Is there any place where those things (like
.r, .c and so on) are documented? How do I recompile a
file? Where are the compiled files saved?
And so on.
I am spending hours trying to read the C++ code, trying
out how GDL reacts, try & failure. I think this are all
simple, very simple things if you know how GDL work.
Well, I am no C++ crack, but I think at least
contributing a little bit of documentation would be
good for GDL. There is nothing, is there? Some Mailing
list? Wiki? IRC? FAQ? For new users some documentation
would be more helpful then new features, I think.
Do you have some url/text to read? Should I ask you
questions per mail or per sourceforge tracker? What do
you prefer? And which mail? Would be great if you had a
little bit of time to answer my questions. I will write
some kind of GDL intro/user guide then.
