Re: batch mode, multiple output files?

Hi Savraj,
Yes, you can do this using the  "ferret -gif" mode.  This is
documented in the on-line users guide.  Go to the index entry
"GIF image, -gif command line switch".  The users guide is at

For example,

> ferret -gif

   yes? use coads_climatology
   yes? shade/l=1 sst
   yes? frame/file=xyslice.gif    ! save the plot in the first gif file
   yes? shade/y=0 sst
   yes? frame/file=xtslice.gif    ! save the plot in a second gif file

I'd like to know if it's possible to run ferret in batch mode to produce
multiple output files, without any connection to an X server.

The same question was posted by Pam McDowell on May 19th last year and
there was no reply in the mail archive.

Here's my current understanding of the batch option:

>ferret -batch < my.jnl
creates "metafile.plt" -- command "set mode metafile" does nothing/causes

>ferret -batch myfile.ps < my.jnl
writes output directly to myfile.ps

Is there a way to make multiple output files?
