Thread: Running an executable (not a shell script) from within SAC - is the $run command obsolete?

Dear All,

I recently installed SAC101.4 on my system (Linux).
Since then, I have been having problems running some of my macros. I tried
to find some documentation in the new-look SAC manual and in the CHANGES
listings on the website, but didn't see anything pertinent to the problem.

Here's the issue: I have a SAC macro from which I call a program (a
fortran-based executable) that requires user input. Up to now it's been
automated as follows in the macros:
...
$run myprogram
input1
input2
etc...
$endrun

Now whenever I try to run any macros that incorporates a "$run... $endrun"
command, I get a segmentation fault.
Has the procedure for running programs from within SAC changed and, if so,
what is the new syntax?

Thanks,
