The Sedpak system consists of several different programs which work together.
See Appendix A. Technical Supplement for more information
on how to run Sedpak.
To get help, from the command line, on how to run sedpak, type:
% sedpak -h
To start the Sedpak Launch menu, type:
The .sedpakrc User Defaults File
Sedpak looks for additional environment variables in a startup file called
.sedpakrc. Copy the dot.sedpakrc
file from the sedpak/docs directory to your home directory and
rename it to .sedpakrc. Edit the variables
XXPRINTER and XXHOME to define the print command and path to your data
files respectively. The print command assigned to XXPRINTER is assumed
to be postscript compatible.
% cp /usr/local/sedpak/docs/dot.sedpakrc ./.sedpakrc
Using a text file editor (or the options menu from either Sedpak application),
edit the file .sedpakrc to reflect your particular system configuration:
XXPRINTER "lpr -Plw"
After you are familiar with the sample datasets in the directory /usr/local/sedpak/datasets,
you may want Sedpak to access datasets in another directory. For example,
suppose that your datasets are in a directory named /smith/sedpak/myData.
You would then change XXHOME in the .sedpakrc file to be
Sedpak's file dialogs will then display files in this directory.
Note that if you have been using a previous version of Sedpak and you
experience difficulties running the program, check to make sure that your
file is up to date.
Sample Data Files
Data files which are used in the manual exercises and which are provided
as examples for the user are located in $XXBASE/datasets. In order to preserve
the integrity of the data, we recommend that users make copies of these
files if they wish to work with them.
