I usually run IDL from the command line and it inherits all the
environment variables I have in my .profile. This allows me to, for
example, "spawn, 'foo'" where foo is in my unix PATH, and foo is
found. When I run the IDLDE by double-clicking on the icon, this does
I've found the suggestion to create a ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist file
and put my path there. This has caused all sorts of other problems.
Is there a way in the IDLDE, or via IDL commands (I can put them in my
startup.pro file), for me to generally get my environment into the
IDLDE or specifically append my PATH statement so that some unix tools
can be found by SPAWN?
