Does anyone know where I can find some material (for free) on IDL? I'm new to programming, and I would like to teach myself this language. I would like suggestions to material that is "novice" friendly.

You might get a lead from our past IDL threads. See recent discussion and some links right at the foot of the page of this discussion: https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/idl-tutorial-recommendations.383423/

You're new to programming? So, you don't know what fun awaits! :smile:
