idltopdf Utility

As part of the standard make in NetSolve, an executable called "idltopdf" is created in the $NETSOLVE_ROOT/bin/$NETSOLVE_ARCH directory. After creating the IDL file, you can create the corresponding PDF by using the idltopdf utility. For example, after creating an IDL file by the name problem.idl, you can create problem.pdf by executing
UNIX> idltopdf problem.idl
in the command prompt. Please note that the IDL file should have the ".idl" extension. This problem can then be integrated into the NetSolve server by copying the problem.pdf to $NETSOLVE_ROOT/problems directory and adding
./problems/problem.pdf
in the $NETSOLVE_ROOT/server_config file. Then the usual procedures of adding a problem to a server should be followed.
