Unix at SLAC
The SCS document
Introduction to Unix at SLAC is a good starting point to get more Unix
information, some of it specific to SLAC.
The Cern Unix Guide
is also quite useful, but beware of differences
between Cern and SLAC.
Since SLAC is moving from NFS to AFS exactly when we expect
E154 to be busy analyzing data, we have moved
the group directories already. You need a line like the following in your
if you want the development version. Replace
you want the production version. Environment variables such as
will then be set properly.
If you want to find out more about AFS, the
SLAC AFS Users Guide is now available.
The use of Fortran and C code is allowed. It is the responsibility of
the C-code to make sure
calls to and from Fortran are handled properly.
Fortran-77 as well as Fortran-90 are acceptable. Please do not use
extensions to the language standard; otherwise, portability is compromised.
For example, use
integer instead of
CERN has a Fortran-90
explaining some of the features of the new language standard.
Hbook and Paw
Julie Rogers (SLAC ext-2691) has hardcopies of the Hbook and Paw manuals.
There are some Hbook and Paw examples available to help the novice. Read the
file 1.README in the directory /afs/slac.stanford.edu/g/esa/e154ola/example/
to get started. Check
Cern's WWW page for Paw for news and many helpful hints.
Other Cernlib Programs
Cernlib manuals are kept in compressed Postscript form in the directory
/usr/local/cernlib/doc/cerndoc. They are rather massive, so please do not
print unless it is really essential. And be prepared to stand by the printer
to feed it!
Documentation for use at SLAC can be found in the file
/usr/local/cernlib/doc/slacdoc/CERNLIB.readme. The environment variables
described in this document are set by the script $E154_COM/setddev and
$E154_COM/setprod. Be sure you invoke one of them in your login script.
Cern maintains a WWW page of
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) for
various Cernlib programs.
Fermliab also maintains
documentation on a number of general software topics, such
as Emacs, CVS, GCC, AIX, etc.
