MIDAS User Levels

Three different user-levels are maintained within the MIDAS system.

NOVICE (beginning MIDAS user)
USER (normal MIDAS user)
EXPERT (expert MIDAS user)
These user-levels are set via the command SET/MIDAS_SYS user=level,
The level NOVICE is the default level assigned to you when getting into MIDAS.
The MIDAS user-level affects the terseness of the error messages. Furthermore, EXPERT users may create commands which override already existing MIDAS commands (be careful ...).
All other users may only create new commands.
Currently, there is no difference between the level NOVICE and USER, but this may change in a future release of MIDAS.
