The Unidata McIDAS distribution contains an example (Bourne) shell
script, mcbatch.sh, that is designed to be copied by the end user into
a local file (in one's ~/mcidas/data directory, for instance); edited;
and run from the Unix command line or cron.  For instance:

<login as you>
cd mcidas/data
cp ~mcidas/data/mcbatch.sh mybatch.sh
<edit mybatch.sh and set environment variables to match your McIDAS

Then you run it with:

mybatch.sh SITES.BAT

Also, running outside of a McIDAS environment is discussed in Appendix
H of the McIDAS Users Guide:



No worries.
