This is what I remember thinking was the case, too. But
here is what the documentation for the SAVE command says:

   "Note also that save files containing routines may not be 
    compatible between different versions of IDL, but that 
    files containing data are always backwards-compatible."

Do you suppose "backwards" really means "forward", which 
would mean...

Oh, never mind, I'm confused enough chasing events
around at the moment. :-(



P.S. Let's just say I'm not even going to mention
the words "Column Major". :-)
