Hmm...  I do not have this problem in the simple test I setup:

- copy your GRDLIST invocation to the file TEST.BAT in my $MCDATA directory

- copy ~mcidas/data/mcrun.sh to my $MCDATA directory as myrun.sh

- edit $MCDATA/myrun.sh:

  - add invocation of BATCH file:

    batch.k TEST.BAT

  - make sure that MCDATA, MCPATH, MCBIN, etc. are set correctly

- run myrun.sh from the Unix command line:

  ./myrun.sh

The output is the file THD_125_12_128_00.GEO.

Thoughts:

- is it possible that you not correctly set the McIDAS environment
  variables needed in your .sh script?

- is it possible that you are trying to write to a directory that
  you do not have permission to write to?

Cheers,

Tom
