I recently came upon the SIGPLAN Notices Special Issue on the
Interface Description Language IDL (1987), and I'm curious about
its current status. In particular:
1. Is IDL still in active development?
2. Can one still obtain a toolset from the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill, or elsewhere?
Have alternative approaches been developed to a similar extent
(toolset freely available, basis for commercial products, etc.)?

[A message in May 1989 from David Lamb, David.Lamb@cs.cmu.edu, said that
Richard Snodgrass, firstname.lastname@example.org, had an IDL processor, but I don't know
whether he's still there. -John]
