IDLSave is a pure python module to import variables from IDL 'save' files (e.g. .sav) into python, and does not require IDL to work. It has a very simple command-line interface, and converts all IDL variables to python types. Arrays are converted to Numpy arrays, and Structures are converted to Numpy record arrays.
The IDLSave code is now also available in scipy.io.
