We have just upgraded our LDM server and found that we have lost all of our scripts needed to print DIFAX maps. Does anyone know of a resource that we could use in order to print selected DIFAX maps as they come in? We used to have a script that would do such a thing, but it was lost in the upgrade, and the link from UNIDATA is invalid. Any ideas on how to proceed at this point?
Hi Chris, Try this. This works with Linux RH 6.0 using PBMPLUS. Should work with other UNIX flavors. Call this from your pqact.conf with an "EXEC" to this script, like: DIFAX ^(2003).* EXEC /home/scripts/convert_difax \1 #!/bin/sh # # Script to print the DIFAX charts. # LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/SUNWspro/lib:/usr/openwin/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/ucblib export LD_LIBRARY_PATH dt=`/bin/date -u +%y%m%d` /usr/bin/g3topbm /home/data/difax/$dt'_'$1.g3|/usr/bin/pnmtops|/usr/bin/lpr
