      Description

      The libCInterface works in the 2012-07-19 build, but to use it, it needs a local copy of the startup file to exist in the working directory. Furthermore, the startup file needs ROOT_PATH to be set to a full path to the instance of GMAT being run.

      This is particularly annoying to users of the C Interface because it's customary to work from a working directory other than GMAT's bin directory, requiring a lot of startup file management to be done.

            Are there plans in place to fully test this once the work is done? Earlier efforts at this resulted in a broken C-Interface which was not fixed for months because the issue was not identified when the coding attempt was put in place.

            This one's up to Steve. Testing as a part of a nightly process will require a fix for GMT-2945. Design for that was done late in 2011. One-off testing can be done without that, though.
