Runs an operating system command.
The OS command lets you run a Unix operating system command from the McIDAS Text and Command Window. The command should include the correct path, if needed. Do not run a command that expects user input while running, for example, telnet.
You can use the ! (Exclamation Point) command to run a Unix command.
