The Amazing Power of flpr

    If you've gotten an error message, or got out of some parameter file in a funny way, or typed a CNTL-c or done anything at all out of the ordinary, you may well find that things are just a little bit funny. The safest thing to do is to type flpr. (This will ``flush the process cache.") It doesn't hurt to type this twice, and sometimes it helps. If flpr itself produces some strange message that doesn't clear itself with another flpr, you may need to log out of ICE/IRAF completely (see Section A.3).
