Running SCHED under UNIX or LINUX

To run SCHED on a UNIX machine such as a SUN or a PC under LINUX, prepare the keyin file without system level commands. Then type, for example,

sched < input.key
Alternatively, if plotting is wanted, for example, type:
sched
<SCHED will write a number of instructive lines>
* plot schedule=input.key /
where the SCHED executable file is assumed to be in the default directory or path and the SCHED input commands are in input.key in the default directory. The ``<'' pipes the information in input.key to SCHED. The ``*'' is the prompt from SCHED. Remember that, in UNIX, file names and commands are case sensitive. Also, there is a complication for users of the tc shell for versions after mid 1995: there is a built-in shell command ``sched'' that the shell takes instead of running SCHED. So to use SCHED, either alias ``sched'' to mean this program or else specify the full path name of the execute module. The files output by SCHED will appear in the default directory.

If your version of SCHED is linked with the PGPLOT libraries (has plotting capability), you will need to set the environoment variables PGPLOT_DIR to the location of the PGPLOT libraries and PGPLOT_FONT to the location of the PGPLOT font files. If you use PGPLOT for other reasons (programming, DIFFMAP etc), then this is likely to be part of your standard setup.
