Search path convention

When a module is called in the command line mode, MegaWave2 searches the file names of the input objects in different directories, following the order:

  1. the current directory of the shell, i.e. ``.'',
  2. $MY_MEGAWAVE2/data and its subdirectories,
  3. $MEGAWAVE2/data and its subdirectories.
Notice that this search path convention has changed from MegaWave2 Versions 1.x to Versions 2.x.

The output objects are always written in the current directory of the shell. Beware : if you give the same name as the one of an existing file, the content of the previous file will be overwritten (there is no confirmation message).
