Program plots and extracts two columns from a given machine readable table file by using the information in the meta-data header. The output is the information from each column saved in two arrays. The syntax is:


where filename is the machine readable file to be read, col# are the columns to be extracted, and array # are the arrays where the information in col# is to be stored. Fancier plots can be created using the information in the array# arrays if necessary. Program can also be run multiple times to extract more than 2 columns worth of information.

Program has been sucessufully compiled and tested on IDL 5.2 running on a SUN Ultra 10.
