Happy New Year to you also!

It could be something in your XCD setup.  I need more information to
have an idea about what may be going on.

All McIDAS commands accept the global keyword DEV=.  This keyword allows
one to save textual output from a command invocation to a file.  Here
is one example:

SFCLIST KDEN 24                      <- text output goest to console

SFCLIST KDEN 24 DEV=T denverwx.out   <- text output goes to ASCII file

It would suprise me greatly if the same action worked for all users
except 'mcidas'.  A consistent failure would mean that the module
imagloop.gui needs to be update to the latest bugfix release.

>Anyway Talk to you later! 

It might be a good idea to update your McIDAS-X installation to the
latest release, Version 7.7.  This way modules with bugs that have
been fixed will be used instead of ones that need updating.  Please
check out:


for more information on Version 7.70.
