Hi David,

I hope that prior to this in your script you completely define environment
variables needed to run McIDAS programs.  The environment variables needed
are MCPATH, and MCTABLE_READ.  Also, the first directory in your MCPATH
should be your usual McIDAS working directory.  I have users define this
in the environment variable MCDATA and then have them define MCPATH to
read:

MCPATH=${MCDATA}:/home/mcidas/data:/home/mcidas/help

I am guessing that the shell you use is the C shell. If yes, you
have some problem in your .cshrc settings that is causing the
'stty: standard input' error.

This most likely indicates that:

- the set of environment variables needed to run McIDAS is not set
  or set correctly in the 'mcidas' account and/or in your script

 -- or --

- your McIDAS environment has a REDIRECTion that points to the file
  SYSKEY.TAB and it can't be found or is zero length

 -- and/or --

- your McIDAS string table file STRTABLE can not be found or is damaged

Any chance I could take a quick look at the 'mcidas' environment setup?

>Thanks,

No worries.

Cheers,

Tom
