Re: Running jnl files from a Unix command line

This topic comes up from time to time, usually on a linux system.  I can't 
remember the exact cause of the problem, something to do with the pager or 
something.  Anyway, the easy way to get around the problem is with the 
-server -batch options.  I've used this to run scripts that are 10 
thousand+ lines long.  So
ferret -batch -server < scriptname.jnl hopefully should fix the problem.

Hope this helps.
