* Using IDL
- You can use IDL only at KIAS servers (i.e. no license server so as to use IDL in your computer. You can buy the license with your research grant if you'd like to install one on your computer).
- You need to first create an account at KIAS servers. Please check the application forms at http://cac.kias.re.kr/page-support-account.html
- To use it, you need to register network license (only once!) using the following command: " /usr/local/exelis/idl/bin/lmutil lmpath -override idl_lmgrd 1700@abacus4.kias.re.kr "
- You can then enjoy IDL at BAEKDU and more...
- License server:
-- Abacus4 (to check whether the license server works well, please type " /usr/local/exelis/idl85/bin/lmstat -a -c 1700@abacus4.kias.re.kr ")
-- There are 4 available licenses.
-- To check how many licenses are available currently, please go to the webpage: http://cac.kias.re.kr/page-resources-monitor.html
