Now GDL is not supporting MAC OS X 10.9 Mavericks. So can the developers update the GDL to be compatible with Mavericks? Thank you
For interactive image processing at least the functionality of CURSOR, /NOWAIT of !MOUSE and of DEVICE, SET_GRAPHICS_FUNCTION=6 must be implemented correctly. Up to now this is not the case. The biggest handicap is the insufficient implementation of CURSOR. Although the crosshair is perfectly tracked in the graphics window, results are only returned when a mouse button is pressed. When I run PV_WAVE or IDL on the same machines (Linux: Kubuntu) everything works as expected. There are many shortcomings that require debugging and workarounds (e.g. you write an integer (2 bytes) to a file, and have to retrieve 4 bytes manually if you read it back), but the dynamic unnamed STRUCTURE works perfectly. So there is some hope that GDL may become a professional tool some time.
There are no 3 star reviews.
