Subject: RE: GEMPAK SpeedPatch
Robert - the patch affects programs that run the 'gplt' application
($GEMPAK/gempak/source/gplt/main) ... this includes most of the programs
in the $GEMEXE directory. If the 'creating process: gplt queue ...'
message comes up during the execution of the *_gif or *_gf programs,
then it will help ... otherwise those programs (that don't show up in
the 5.7.4 version that I have in front of me) are running on something
other than 'gplt' (doubtful? ... Steve can probably field that one
better than me).
A quick way to check if the speedPatch is working for you is to run
`gpend` on the command line without any message queues running. If the
result is instantaneous, then the speedPatch is functional ... if you
have to wait for a full second before the program terminates, then the
update isn't installed.
