mf cal fail on OSX Catalina

Postby jcal » Wed Nov 25, 2020 11:32 pm

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to Catalina (10.15.7). I installed miriad without any issues up until now. Uvspec, pgflag etc seem to be working, but when I call mfcal, it breaks with what could be C memory issue?

Suggest any solutions to this problem? Have I stuffed up the install?

Output from mfcal:

Hi Joe,

sorry for the late reply, somehow I didn't get notified.
I've just installed a new version of miriad that fixes the problem (at least for me).
