20050223: garp: o plotted as wind symbol


A change in the calling sequence of a GEMLIB routine
in 5.6.K caused Garp wind barbs to be plotted with no value (eg zero).
I posted a patch to the Garp pvgrid.f which is in all subsequent
My testing of barbs does work in 5.7.4, so I'm not sure what you are
seeing. Are you using the 5.7.4 Garp binary from our download, or is this a version you built locally?

Gempak 5.6j plots the wind barb symbols

If I copy Gemenviron and garp's Garp_defaults from the working vers.
to the non-working versions, same result.

The working Gempak/garp is built on a freebsd box. The non-working garp is built on linux RH 7.3.

Any suggestions on what the 'o' symbol means in garp and what the
solution might be?
