dinverext usage

Postby agostiny » Wed Jul 25, 2012 3:14 pm

Dear Marc

I would like to use the dinver with an external forward computation script, but I am having some troubles.
The script is inv.bash to be run as: ./inv.bash parameters misfit where
parameter is an automatically generated file from dinver following the requirements from parameters panel and misfit is the file used to store misfit value (real).
The problem arises when I click on run followed by add (run). The graphical interface will then stick. When I check the directory from where the script is executed, I see that the file parameters has been generated but contains a zero value vector
I attachment a screenshot of the parameter panel as well as the log.
The question is then am I using the tool properly? or why am I getting a single column file with zeros? or why should the GUI stick?
I would be happy if you could help me solve this issue.

With regards

Strange... I've just checked here.

Working directory: /tmp
External command: ./inv.bash

Code: Select all

cat /tmp/inv.bash

cat parameters | awk 'BEGIN{m=0}{m+=$1^2}END{print sqrt(m)}' > misfit


Code: Select all

parameter("v0","m/s",100,1000, 0.05, "log");
parameter("v1","m/s",500,1500, 50, "linear");


Code: Select all

In your snapshots, I could not see the "Starting at ..." section. Does it start really? Can you copy the complete log in your post (rather than snapshot)?

Is your script with the 'x' permission? If not, you should receive an error message after adding a new inversion run:

Code: Select all

Error creating a new inversion thread.

./inv.bash failed to start. Either ./inv.bash is missing, or you may have insufficient permissions to invoke it.
Error setting target, see above messages

Did you manage to get a new run created in the run table? I cannot see any in your snapshot.

Hi Marc,

Thanks for the detailed example.
I followed it after which I went back to my script and realised I had to wait a bit more for a run to be created in the table.

Now all is fine
