Starts a scheduler process.
SKED filename [keyword]
SKED begins a scheduler process that runs until you exit the McIDAS-X session. Use the ? (Question Mark) command to list all running processes.
At start up, the default .mcidasrc file starts a scheduler process using the default scheduler file, SKEDFILE. If you run multiple McIDAS-X sessions under the same account or using the same MCPATH setting, each session should run a scheduler process using a different file name. Otherwise, you might have scheduler entries from one session running on the other sessions.
If you start a scheduler process using a file other than SKEDFILE, you must use the keyword FILE with commands SKE, SKL and SKU since those commands also use SKEDFILE as their default scheduler file.
If you do not want the scheduler to automatically start, comment out the command -c 'SKED SKEDFILE' in your .mcidasrc file, or use the question mark (?) command to list the processes, then use the KILL command to stop the SKED process.
