Next is a list of nroff files for the UNIX man command. describing the syntax for the previous scripts and should be copied to a local man directory (e.g /usr/local/manl ): /midas/11SEP/system/unix/inmidas.l /midas/11SEP/system/unix/gomidas.l /midas/11SEP/system/unix/helpmidas.l /midas/11SEP/system/unix/readline.l 2.10 Running MIDAS for the first time Once the installation of MIDAS is successfully completed, you still need to initialize some MIDAS files by executing the following sequence, once: % mkdir /midas/tmp % cd /midas/tmp % inmidas Midas 001 > @ compile.all (this will produce about 40 lines of output and it will exit to the Shell) % gomidas Midas 002 > @ ascii bin (this will create the LUTs and ITTs files) Midas 003 > bye Now you are ready to run MIDAS. Type inmidas for your first MIDAS session or gomidas to resume a previous interrupted MIDAS session. NOTE: If you’ve used autoconfig instead of config for the installation, all the steps described above are done automatically for you. 8

2.11 Verifying MIDAS To verify the correct installation of MIDAS you can now execute a set of verification pro- cedures: % cd /midas/tmp % inmidas Midas 001 > @ vericopy The vericopy procedure will copy the verification procedures and some data files to your working directory. Some of these procedures use, by default, the display facilities but they can be disabled with a given argument. To run a particular verification procedure: Midas 002 > @@ verify XX have a look into your directory to see what XX can be, or if you want to run all of them (it stops if something fails), just type: Midas 003 > @@ veriall The verification procedures are designed to exercise MIDAS commands and to compare results with internal and correct values. They should stop and report to the operator if the tests detect problems with some MIDAS commands. Alternatively, you can run the verifications plus all tutorials via the Midas procedure superverify.prg. You need to download the file demo data.tar.gz with Midas test files from /midaspub on ftp.eso.org and create and fill a directory demo/data in e.g. /midas, and have the env. var. MID TEST point to that directory, first: % export MID TEST=/midas/demo/data % cd /midas/tmp % inmidas Midas 004 > @ superverify 2.12 Cleaning MIDAS If you are satisfied with the installation, you could clean the MIDAS directory and get some disk space by removing installation files or even packages of MIDAS that are not needed. A backup of the whole MIDAS directory is recommended before executing this step. From the config menu, select the option 9 - clean MIDAS . You will get a menu of choices, and for any option you select, confirmation will be requested before it starts re- moving files: 9

    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.
