- Template and brief instructions for including a GUI into DAVE (version 1.x)
- To have additional functions included in PAN, you have to define one in IDL as described briefly in PAN_userfunction.pdf or use this function template as a guide. The IDL source code can then be forwarded to us for inclusion in the next build of DAVE if considered appropriate.
Documentation for the stand-alone version of PAN (requires an IDL license) can be found here . Most of it is also relevant to the DAVE version of PAN so do check it out.
