When processing a single data file, some applications report the name of the file and some do not. Normally, no extra information is given when processing groups of data files. This means that sometimes you get to see the names of the files as they are processed, and some times you do not. It just depends on the application.
However, it is often very useful to see the names of the files as they are processed. For instance, if an error occurs processing one of the files, it is useful to know which file failed. If the application doesn't display this information, then you can force it to by setting the shell environment variable KAPPA_REPORT_NAMES to an arbitrary value.26 For instance, in the C-shell:
% setenv KAPPA_REPORT_NAMES 1
This causes the value used for each data file parameter to be displayed in the
"parameter = value" on each invocation. To go back to the
normal, quiet reporting scheme, you should undefined KAPPA_REPORT_NAMES.
% unsetenv KAPPA_REPORT_NAMES
