    Hello, I am trying to read in information from a GIS shapefile and want to be able to create a new shapefile in GDL. In IDL this can be done using IDLffShape, but that does not seem to work in GDL. Does anyone have an alternate way of doing this?

    GDL does not support shapefiles yet. Any help in adding this functionality is very welcome. There is an open-source library that reads shapefiles ( so equipping GDL with this functionality is a matter of writing a wrapper interface that would mimick IDL syntax and use shapelib's API.
