I am writing some IRAF scripts involving the use of the task "identify".
I would like to use the task interactively, as when it is launched from
the command line.
Everything works fine at the beginning: the task is launched and the
graphical window pops up, waiting for the interactive commands. The
problem is that whenever I try to mark some features using the "m" key
the task does not allow me to type in the wavelength, just as if the
enter key is automatically hit, so that the feature wavelength remains
INDEF. Trying to hit "u" to enter the wavelength is of no help.
The keystrokes and colon commands work fine, but there is no way of
typing in the wavelength for marked features.
I also tried to launch identify through a simple script with just a
line: "identify", and I noticed that at the end (being the "autowrite"
parameter set to "no") the script does not stop waiting for my answer,
but it gets the last entry and directly exits; also this behaviour
suggests that it is just like an enter command is automatically sent to
Could you give me any suggestion on how to solve this problem?
Thank you for all the help you may provide.
with best regards
