HICO L-2 Processing

I think the "current working directory" for users who run l2gen (and other processing programs) from the GUI is a bit of a mystery.  I don't know if there is a simple rule for all use cases, but one way to be sure is to edit the ocssw_runner script to write the $PWD value to a file in the user's home directory.   I'd try that myself, but most of my processing is done on the command line.

As I recall the working dir that the GUI uses is the directory that the ifile is in.  I believe that was an attempt to keep me sane when SeaDAS was launched by the Finder on a Mac or some linux desktop launcher. I would have to go back and check the Java code that I wrote many years ago to be sure.

running l2gen from the command line is your best bet.  Then you know what the working directory is.

The abscf_gas.nc file bug has already been fixed, so this will not be a problem in the next release.
