Sample text

The array-oriented approach is much easier to read, understand, and program correctly. Second, the first version is much slower than the second. ’ In this script, the input and output arrays x, y, and z are created. Then the time is compared for the FOR loop and the array syntax by calculating the elapsed time with the SYSTIME function. (This includes only the time to do the arithmetic operation, omitting the time required to allocate the arrays in See the SYSTIME function in IDL Reference Guide.

11111110 11111111 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 254 255 When you type x = 15B, IDL will translate the decimal number 15 into a 1-byte internal binary representation (00001111). The value represented by the characters 15B is a constant. It is, obviously, always equal to 15. Because its value can be changed, the quantity indicated by the name x is a variable. 5. Whatever the number of bits used, there are two main things to watch out for when using integer data types. The first is that there is a limited range of numbers that can be represented.

9223372036854775807 How long would it take to count from 0 to 263 ? 7 Converting One Integer Type to Another In some cases IDL will automatically convert one type to another. For example, IDL> x = 20000S IDL> help, x X INT IDL> print, 2*x 40000 IDL> help, 2*x LONG = 20000 = 40000 Because we used the COMPILE_OPT IDL2 statement in our startup file, the default integer type is LONG. Therefore, the constant 2 is treated as a LONG. Before the multiplication with x is carried out, x is converted to a LONG.
