I think you need to pay a competent professional to handle
this for you. But it wouldn't be easy. The documentation
is awful, and they would have to plow through it, too.
Still, I can't imagine tab delimited data taking more than
2-3 minutes. The PostScript output is probably another 30
seconds. You might have to pay as much as $5-$10 to get
this handled. :-(
How about something like this:
data = FltArr(ofWhatEverSize)
OpenR, lun, 'mydatafile.txt', /Get_Lun
ReadF, lun, data
thisDevice = !P.Name
It can be fancier than that. But that's about it.
