Online Analysis: The PacMans

Before you start the pacman programs, check if they are already running:

$ ps auxww | grep sexpac


$ ps auxww | grep idl

If either of these calls returns a process ID, do NOT run the following commands. To start the Pacman programs, open a terminal and type:

$ cd /rotse/data/pipeline/

$ startsexpac

$ startidlpac

$ exit

The output of sexpacman is logged to a file sexpac.log. The output of idlpacman is logged to a file called idlpac.log. The outputs can be monitored with the tail-f command as described in Section 2.3.1.
