20060201: Nsharp resource file


David,

You are referencing old files. The configuration of the menu pulldowns is
done through $GEMTBL/nsharp files, where the data set name UAIR in
nsharp_observed.tbl is the $GEMTBL/config/datatype.tbl alias- the
same datalocation you would be expecting by using the UAIR template in
the SN* programs.

I'm having trouble with Nsharp finding the correct data directory for

file ( ~/.app-defaults) has been modified to the data directory but
does not appear to have any affect.

Closer examination reveals that this may be an older resource file since
it mentions V3.1 at the top of the file.  In $NAWIPS/resource/ there is
a resource file for NSHARP v3.2 but it only has a few lines and no paths
to data locations. In addition, if I use this file in my .app-defaults
directory, I get errors:

$ nsharp
nsharp: line 1: Nsharp.geometry:: command not found
nsharp: line 2: syntax error near unexpected token `('
nsharp: line 2: Nsharp.title:    SkewT Hodograph Analysis and Research
Program (V3.2 + UPC Mods)'

There must be something simple that I've overlooked...

--gempak v5.9.1 darwin
--MacOS X 10.4.2

Thanks,

David
