      Drop comment and null lines from a text array.


Calling Sequence

      out = drop_comments(in)


      in = input text array. in

Keyword Parameters


        IGNORE=ig Text string of allowed comment characters.
          Default is ';*', so lines starting with the characters
          * or ; in column 1 are considered comments and dropped.
        /NOTRIM means don't do a strtrim on text array.
          By default any line with white space but no text is
          considered a null line and dropped. If /NOTRIM is
          specified only true null lines are dropped.
        /TRAILING means drop any trailing comments on each line.
          Be careful of the default comment characters for this.
        /NULL Keep null lines.
        ERROR=err Error flag: 0=OK, 1=All lines dropped.
        /QUIET Means suppress error messages.
        INDEX=indx Indices in original input of retained lines.


      out = processed text array. out
