IRAF Networking

To network with IRAF it is not necessary to ``do lunch." Instead, the astronomer may address images on one machine from another by specifying their full path names. For instance, to display images stored on the ``schmidt" account on loden while running IRAF logged on to cocoa as ``4meter", one would merely say set hum=``loden!/data1/schmidt/" (note the final ``/") and then do a display hum$e0011.imh 1 fill+, for instance. Similarly, one could copy a file from loden to cocoa by typing imcopy hum$e0011.imh newe0011.imh. A further example may be inferred from that of Fig. 11.
