I'm trying to write to an explicit print file using the -log= paramter in "fx" and I get the following error: "WARNING Unable to write session log [PRT_Logs/PSP_010453_1675_RED_3.5-3.4.13_FXDIFF.prt] Disk may be full or directory permissions not writeable". I using astrovm2 with ISIS 3.4.13.

My working directory is: /work/users/jshinaman/Support/RM_4741/3.4.13/FXDIFF

My command line is: fx f1=3.5_JITTER.mos.cub f2=3.4.13_JITTER.mos.cub to=PSP_010453_1675_RED_3.5-3.4.13_FXDIFF.cub equation="f2-f1" -log=PRT_Logs/PSP_010453_1675_RED_3.5-3.4.13_FXDIFF.prt >> CMD_Logs/CMD_FX_PSP_010453_1675_RED_3.5-3.4.13_FXDIFF.log &

The print file output directory is "PRT_Logs" within the main working directory.

The input data are all within the main working directory.

It looks like the issue maybe the output area in command line is "PRT_Logs" and the output in "/work/users/jshinaman/Support/RM_4741/3.4.13/FXDIFF/" is "PRT_logs". I was able to produce the same error message that is in the post when I tried to write to a directory that did not exist. It might be helpful if the error message told the user the directory was not found.

USER ERROR - There was a typo in the output directory name causing the error. However, the error message needs to be improved, and therefore a new ticket needs to be generated to accomplish the task.
