I can understand from a seasoned programmers point of view why GUI builders
would seem ugly and be more of a hiderence than a help. However, working in a
hospital I have only a limited time to spend programing in IDL (and other
languages too), as I have other commitments. The GUIbuilder would at least
allow simple things to be programmed quickly with a front end the
radiologists could relate to. (Have to be very user friendly!)

Michael, I too am an impurist in programming terms. Therefore, your safe from
the flames!

Anyway there is only one thing that I ask for, from Santa,

IDL equality for all!
