We report the points to be careful of when re-starting IDL after
the forced termination.
If you force-quit IDL(*), you may have a trouble to re-start it.
The IDL configuration file may be damaged due to the forced termination.
Consequently, IDL is not initialized and cannot be started.
The following two workarounds are available:
- Rename "~/IDLWorkspace8?"
- Rename "~/.idl"
(*) The followings are how to force-quit IDL:
- Do the Ctrl+C on the command line
- Use the kill command
(use the option '-9' if it doesn't work without options.)
Note that both of the procedures can damage the configuration file.
