MGH_VAR_STORE

  MGH_VAR_STORE

Purpose


  Procedure MGH_VAR_SAVE creates a copy of an IDL variable at a call level

  built-in function ROUTINE_NAMES. See:
      http://astrog.physics.wisc.edu/~craigm/idl/introspect.html#ROUTINE_NAMES

Calling Sequence


  MGH_VAR_STORE, var

Arguments


  var (Input)
      The variable to be saved.

Keywords


  CLOBBER (Input)
      This keyword determines whether an existing variable is overwritten.
      Default is 1 (overwrite)--it is assumed that the caller knows what
      he/she is doing! Note that when CLOBBER is 0, checking the existence
      of a variable involves making a temporary copy of it, which may be
      expensive.
  LEVEL (Input)
      The level in the call stack at which the variable is to be stored.
      Default is 1 (main program).
  NAME (Input)
      The name under which the variable is to be known at the new level.
      Default is 'var0'
  VERBOSE (Input)
      This keyword determines whether an informational message is generated.
      Default is 1 (write message).

Side Effects


  Existing variables may be overwritten (see CLOBBER keyword).
