$ ur_setup common primaryWhy is this happening?
task `cl' has no param file
Fatal startup error. CL dies.
Bugs in IRAF's core are triggering subtle failures on modern operating systems. Improvements to glibc, the C library on Linux (libc.so) and OSX (libSystem.dylib) have recently introduced an incompatibility with IRAF's built-in file/string handling functions. The version of glibc responsible for this issue is not likely to be determined. It is common practice for operating system developers to backport features into older (stable) versions of the library 'upstream', so verions numbers are not easily traceable.
