Initialisation Files

All SIC based interactive programs read a initialisation file before starting. This file is a standard command procedure for the corresponding program. For example, for GREG it could contain:

SIC\LET SEC PI/180/3600         ! Second in Radian
SIC\SIC HELP CONTENT            ! Use PostScript file for HELP
GTVL\DEVICE                     ! Prompt for a graphics device
The initialisation file is located in your home directory, and its name is ``init.program'' where ``program'' is the default file extension for the application; this is usually just the application name.
