Overview

This is the documentation for various IDL routines we've written over the years. There's a lot routines for working with lightning, but there are others you may find handy.

All the routines are hosted in Git repos on BitBucket. The location of each repo can be found in the directory overview.

Dependencies

Routines in one repo may depend on others. I'm not utilizing submodules (yet), so be warned. Also, many of the routines depend on Coyote Graphics. Go ahead and get yourself a copy using git.

Warning

The Git repos available may have routines that are not documented here. These routines should be considered in an "alpha" state and should be avoided. In general, they work, but YMMV. Basically, if you don't see the routine here, don't use it :-)
