Yes it does, I use them to create lists of frames then act on the list. For example if I have a set of images HD123_1,HD123_2 etc. Then
files HD123* > l_HD123 #create a file l_HD123 with all the images in it.
imcombine @l_HD123 HD123 combine=median #median combines all the images in the list into a new image HD123
The format of the commands is standard task input output parameters.
You can also use wild cards inline but I have not done so.
I attach my calibration script which would have a .cl extension in IRAF. I have changed it to .doc to upload. Open it in Notepad. Note that I am not using darks at the moment so just bias subtraction. I will add scaled darks to the script.
