I am having the following Problem while working with iraf. I have some .mx files which i need to convert to .fits file for which i require iuetools package to be installed in iraf. I was already having iraf installed, i installed iuetools. I am having the following problem in iuetools.cl file :
When i say mxexpand abc.mxhi ; it says : ERROR: package `iuetools$x_iuetools' not found !
Do i need to edit iuetools.cl file where this thing is written?
A 'package not found' error may mean you declared the package incorrectly. Assuming you downloaded the tarball and compiled the source correctly (see the Install_Guide.txt file), the package is declared by editing the hlib$extern.pkg file with something like
If you have an 'iraf' user and that account owns the iraf tree you'll need to be logged in as iraf for this to work. The 'hlib$' iraf logical path simply means $iraf/unix/hlib where the $iraf represents the iraf root directory (typically /iraf/iraf/, so try editing /iraf/iraf/unix/hlib/extern.pkg).
'Cannot open connected subprocess' is different than 'package not found', it basically means the binary file can't be found. Did you compile the package from the source? Is there an x_iuetools.e file in the package's directory? If not, see the readme/install file that comes with the package or let me know what platform you're using and I can probably provide a binary.
I put a linux binary at http://iraf.net/ftp/pub/x_iuetools.LINUX for you. This should work on either CentOS or Ubuntu, just download the file in binary mode, rename to 'x_iuetools.e' and put it in IUETOOLS package directory.
