inmidas and gomidas are the commands to start and continue MIDAS in a user terminal (no GUI exists for that). helpmidas is a script to start a stand-alone GUI help for MIDAS, equivalent to execute create/gui help within MIDAS. These files should be copied by the system administrator to a public directory (included in the PATH list) where users of MIDAS can access them by name (e.g. /usr/local/bin ). The command inmidas starts a MIDAS session. Type inmidas -help for a description of which options are available. Options can also be passed to MIDAS through their equiv- alent environment variables, but options passed by argument take preference over those defined in the environment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
