User variables

Users may need to change the following variables before using the software.

ORAC_DATA_ROOT

Location of the raw and reduced data directories if it confirms with the naming convention for the instrument. Should be set before the instrument startup script, which uses this variable to set ORAC_DATA_IN and ORAC_DATA_OUT.

ORAC_DATA_IN

Actual location of raw data files. Should be set after the instrument startup script.

ORAC_DATA_OUT

Actual location of reduced data files. This is also the working directory of the pipeline. Should be set after the instrument startup script.

ORAC_CAL_ROOT

Directory where the instrument specific

ORAC_DATA_CAL

Location of the calibration files for the instrument. Set by the instrument startup script to ORAC_CAL_ROOT/$<$instrument$>$.

ORAC_RECIPE_DIR

Location of user-defined recipes. These supersede any identically names ones in ORAC_DIR/recipes/$<$instrument$>$.

ORAC_PRIMITIVE_DIR

Location of user-defined primitives. These supersede any identically names ones in ORAC_DIR/primitives/$<$instrument$>$.

ORACDR_TMP

Location of scratch files for the ADAM messaging system. If this environment variable is not set, then this location will default to ORAC_DATA_OUT.

ORAC_NOGROUPS

If set, group processing will be disabled.

ORAC_KEEP

If set, all intermediate files created by ORAC-DR will be kept. This does not include temporary files; to keep temporary files run ORAC-DR with the -debug flag.
