grep "making" $WIENROOT/makescratch

The above terminal command should return in the output:

echo making $scratch directory

I looks like $scratch might have somehow got set to: -i

Since the mkdir command does not have a -i option, it returns that "invalid option" error.

I would first try checking the contents of scratch variable in the terminal/script environment and also the "Scratch Directory" box in w2web under run_SCF.

Second, I would try adding -x to makescratch_lapw to see if the long output could give a better idea were the problem might be coming (similar to what was mentioned for troubleshooting csh scripts like x_lapw [ ]).

On one, and only on one, of my computers I receive:

making -i directory
mkdir: invalid option -- 'i'
Try `mkdir --help' for more information.
ERROR: option 1 does not exist!

when I try to start the scf from w2web, has anyone an idea what that might be ?
