The RESOLVE_ROUTINE procedure compiles user-written or library procedures or functions, given their names. Routines are compiled even if they are already defined. RESOLVE_ROUTINE looks for the given filename in IDL’s search path. If the file is not found in the path, then the routine exits with an error.
RESOLVE_ROUTINE, Name, /COMPILE_FULL_FILE, /EITHER, /IS_FUNCTION, /NO_RECOMPILE, /QUIET
A scalar string or string array containing the name or names of the procedures to compile. If Name contains functions rather than procedures, set the IS_FUNCTION keyword. The Name argument cannot contain the path to the .pro file—it must contain only a .pro filename. If you want to specify a path to the .pro file, use the .COMPILE executive command.
When compiling a file to find a specified routine, IDL normally stops compiling when the desired routine (Name) is found. If set, COMPILE_FULL_FILE compiles the entire file.
If set, indicates that the caller does not know whether the supplied routine names are functions or procedures, and will accept either. This keyword overrides the IS_FUNCTION keyword.
Set this keyword to compile functions rather than procedures.
Normally, RESOLVE_ROUTINE compiles all specified routines even if they have already been compiled. Setting NO_RECOMPILE indicates that such routines are not recompiled.
Normally, RESOLVE_ROUTINE will generate errors if the routine cannot be found or if it is a system routine. Set QUIET to quietly ignore any errors.
