How to Run IDL
You can use any text editor to make the appropriate input files for IDL.
IDL is not available in batch.
To run IDL interactively you must first connect to the cluster login node with X11 forwarding enabled. Then use qrsh to obtain an interactive session. When the interactive session is granted enter at the command prompt of the compute node:
module load idl
Please notice: IDL scripts (containing IDL commands and ending with a .pro extension) can be executed at the IDL command line.
