Unofficial GDL Binary distribution is here!
Build 160105: Bump to GDL 0.9.6. From this version, the installer also installs an IDL-like dedicated IDE for GDL (called GDL Workbench). The source code of the IDE is available in the GDL main source tree, and your contribution is urgently needed!
Build 150406: Lots of bugs are fixed. Now TV and CURSOR work quite well (but not perfect). Still widget functionality is not fully implemented yet, this version implements a fake XDISPLAYFILE and WIDGET_CONTROL, which is simply a proxy of PRINT. From this version, setup automatically associates '*.pro' files to GDL. Newly available procedures/functions - FILE_SEARCH (needs test), FILE_EXPAND_PATH(needs test), FILE_READLINK(needs test), WRITE_TIFF, POLYWARP, DIALOG_MESSAGE, and DIALOG_PICKFILE.
Build 141116: Added several missing DLLs.
12/AUG update: The developer updated the installer and gdl0.9.4-cvs-140811.exe worked perfectly at first try on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. A quick check with simple plots worked well. More testing of GDL is now needed... 5/AUG: I downloaded this program with anticipation, as a Windows version of GDL has been lacking for many years. Unfortunately the installer (v.140606) does not contain all files needed to run the program and I was unable to run this Win32 version of GDL on either Windows 7 or Windows 8. I trust the developers will soon fix this and I am looking forward to give it another try when ready.
UPDATE for cvs-140811 plotting windows is still sketchy but better. Install did not require file movement. It might help to have the following symbols: PLPLOT_DRV_DIR=D:\programs\gnudatalanguage\plplot\drivers PLPLOT_HOME=D:\programs\gnudatalanguage\plplot GDL_PATH=+D:\programs\gnudatalanguage\lib
