I am currently still using IDL, but will probably switch fully to GDL once my paid license runs out. One of my favorite things about IDL is the built in Development Environment (IDLDE), which makes debugging extremely simple. So I was wondering, are there any plans in the works for a GDLDE?
I haven't heard of any such plans but help is very welcome! (e.g. it's possible to adapt Eclipse to such needs)
Emacs has the idl-wave mode that's apparently used by many GDL users.
Vim has IDL/GDL syntax highlighting buil-in as well.
hmmm… I wasn't aware of the emacs/vim highlighting since i just use gedit. I would offer to help build a native DE, but at the moment I only know IDL style programming (and I'm not very good at it yet).
I have posted an article on my blog about how one might go about creating a GDL IDE. With some very basic source code as a start.
