Hi Dilip, I do this by sending tace the commands via the csh "<<" operator.
(Not my idea, I saw other people using it.) E.g.:
# ~/ggscrps/loadace, DEM 7/22/94
# "loadace <file>" loads ~/xgraingenes/rawdata/<file> into the database.
echo Loading file $file
, where /home/grains/textxgg is a script that sets $ACEDB and invokes tace.
