7.3. Configuring user accounts for IRAF

User accounts should be loosely modeled after the IRAF account. All that is required for a user to run IRAF is that they run mkiraf in their desired IRAF login directory before starting up the CL. Each user should review the resulting login.cl file and make any changes they wish. Any user wanting to run batch jobs, including printer access, must execute the `iraf' command in their LOGIN.COM file, making sure it is executed for non-interactive jobs. Individual process quotas for IRAF users should be set as described in the next section.
