Just had a chat with Jerry Foot about IRAF on a PC. He will check back
with us in a few months to see if there has been any development in this
area.

David Bainbridge called from Purdue with problems connecting a DEC LJ250
for graphics output. This printer uses DEC's own graphics language but
has an HP PaintJet emulation mode. David modified his sgiqueue.com and
graphcap files (apparently correctly), and copied the sgi2vhpl translator
so it could be used as an sgi2lj250 translator. Everything looked okay
but any attempt to send graphics resulted in the sgiqueue.com file itself
being printed. The net connection was slow so he'll check the files again
to make sure there aren't any typos. If the problems continue he'll
send email.

Dave Bainbridge called from purdue asking about the latest IRAF for VMS. He
also had a question about why HAFTON wasn't working. Turns out he was running
a Decterm and not an Xterm.

George Hong(?) called from LPL wondering how to use his Solaris machine as
a terminal for a Sun/IRAF system. He knows IRAF doesn't run under solaris
but was trying to use gterm/imtool on the remote machine. I explained about
xterm/saoimage and he seemed satisfied.

He will check back in mid-July or so.smith@msupa.bitnet

Glenn Sembrowski called from Purdue because he'd heard a rumor we were releasing
VMS/IRAF this week. I told him to watch the archive and that it wouldn't
be too much longer.

Glenn Sembrowski called with some questions about his VMS installation. We
talked about sgiqueue.com and the meaning of 'stdimage', they now seem
to have an HP LJ250 working. He called back later with CCDRED questions, I
referred him to Jeannette.

See earlier mail....

George somebody called from LPL with questions about displaying images
from Sun/IRAF to a Solaris machine. We discussed X networking and personal
fifo pipes, and I sent him the newsletter article. He'll call back if he
can't get it to work.

Richard Snyder called from CTA (don't know what it means) with
installation problems. He's got a tape drive on another machine (ra) but
only wants iraf installed on his local machine (monet). He edited dev$hosts
but was unable to get networking going. The nameserver on monet didn't
know about ra, and ra wasn't in the /etc/hosts file so even the fallback
rexec call would fail with an unknown host. There was also a 'stty' command
in his .cshrc causing problems. We got all of this straightened out and
then began working on his tapecap entry. He finally got it working but kept
forgetting the node! prefix when using the tape. I also set up his printer
defaults for text/graphics hardcopy. He seems to be okay now but will call
back if there are any other problems.

Glen Sembroski called from Purdue with an Xterm question. He'd
called earlier having been stung by the same Xterm11 problem under VMS
and was using the V2.9 xterm executable. This was working fine, he just
wanted to find a larger fonts, we hunted for the font directory and he
found one he likes.

Dan Plonsey called from UCBerkeley with a segvio problem using DISP-
LAY. He'd removed all of the node! prefixes from his images i_pixfile in
the headers which might have been the problem. We talked a bit about network-
ing in general and why IRAF uses it. He also asked about progress on the
Solaris port.

Robert Patterson called from SW Missouri State having imfort problems on an
RS/6000. The FC command would simply return a prompt without doing anything,
the same for XC. We verified his installation and the location of the
files, but found that when he tried to run f77 it returned an error. This
is a diskless 340 connected via ethernet to a 560, for some reason he can't
use the 560 as an iraf machine. He'll look into getting fortran running on
the machine first, and worry about IRAF later if it doesn't fix it.

John Varssick called from Big Bear Solar Obs. asking about a conv-
olution task. He's got some spectra he wants to convolve with an instrumental
response function. He doesn't have STSDAS so using the FOURIER package was
out, he will look at the GAUSSIAN task to see if that will work. He also
had problems printing the VMS IG to his laserwriter, only the title page
would appear. He transferred the file in binary mode, I provided an uncomp-
ressed version just in case. He's had problems in the past with long lines
in PS files so it might have been the TOC, he'll try the transfer again.

Lou Hobbs called from UChicago with some quick questions about moving
images around in VMS/IRAF. He wasn't sure whether a directory specification
required a leading '.' when copying to a subdirectory.

Glen Langston called from NRAO with display problems. He didn't have root
permissions and so didn't run the install script. He'll either use personal
pipes with SAOimage or get his system manager to run the script.

Just to log a call from a chap at New Mexico State who was looking for some
IRAF tasks to do fast fourier transforms and outputing a real and imaginary
part. I referred him to stsdas.

Kent Wells called from LPL asking about the Solaris port, I gave him the

Tom Lutz called from Wash. St. Univ: They won't be able to spend any
money to go to the ADASS (since it's out of the country) so they want to buy
a new computer to run IRAF. They currently have DecStations and access to
an Alpha running VMS, but were interested in a Sparc LX w/ GX card, 32Mb RAM,
and a 1Gb disk running Solaris. We talked a bit about requirements and
Solaris but this sounded like a reasonable system (he understands IRAF won't
use the GX card).

Dan Plonsey called with SAOimage problems, one of his users had a
zombie set of processes running, Dan just couldn't remember where he'd heard
what the solution was before. He also asked about the Solaris port, I gave
him the usual response.

Al Grauer called to followup his last email, we were able to sort out
a bad value for $iraf (no trailing '/') and he is up and running. He also
had to add /usr/local/bin to his personal path in order to find the commands.

Jim Bout called from Adaptive Optics in Cambridge with IRIX install-
ation questions. He was reading an Exabyte distribution but the last file in
each tar file was incomplete (these are 'tags' for as.irix.gen and the
OBJS.arc.Z file for the binaries). He will try re-reading the tape using
"dd if=/dev/nrtape | tar -xpf -" and will call back if the problems continue.

Jim Blout called back from Adaptive Optics still having problems
reading his IRIX distrubution tape under IRIX 4.0.5f on a Deltrix drive.
He will experiment with the drive to see if it may be at fault, try reading
the tape from another drive remotely mounted on a Sun, and if that fails
I've put the ib.irix.mip:OBJS.arc.Z and as.irix.gen:tags files in the ftp
archive for him to retrieve. He has everything he needs for a working
system but wants to "have it all".

Roy Gal called from Columbia asking about a missing msresp1d.par
file from the ARGUS package. The par file is actually under SPECRED, he
will look there and make sure everything is unlearned.

Dyer called from the mountain with Exabyte tapecap problems on
dynamo. The EOT wasn't being found correctly, adding a "Surprised!w" seems to have
fixed things.

Mike DeRobertis called from DAO with questions about installing the
patch files and binaries. He also asked about 'snoise' problems and whether
these will be fixed with an unlearn/mkiraf.

I answered then on the phone and sent her mail for the record.

Tom Fuller called from UC Santa Barbara having problems with STRFITS
in STSDAS.FITSIO. He was trying to read a FITS image written by Vista, but
was getting an error about a parameter field, an unlearn fixed the problem.

Carol Wood called from Vallparaiso Univ(?) having SunPro compiler
problems building STSDAS and TABLES. I suggested she download the binaries
from our system, she has the V1.4 compiler around as a backup, and I told
her about the Sun patch that should make SunPro and V1.4 compatible.
