I'm trying to run batch processing files written in IDL from the SeaDAS 6.3 command line (with a full IDL license), but "seadas -b filename" just results in "The command file filename does not exist. Exiting." I've placed the files I'm trying to access in the SeaDAS idl_lib directory, but that hasn't solved it.
filename should be the name of the file that contains the commands. What SeaDAS is telling you is that it can't find a file called "filename" in the working directory.
You do not need to put these files in idl_lib (and probably shouldn't, although it really won't hurt).
How do I change the working directory to include the location of the programs I'm trying to use?
EDIT: I have been using the name of the file I'm trying to run; I just used filename as an example.
You can give it a full path...
seadas -b /the/full/path/to/my/filename
or simply run seadas from the directory where filename exists
