RE: suggested GEMPAK 5.9.3 NAM pqact entry issue

I got an e-mail from Stonie Cooper.  The problem is that I need to
upgrade our PDI software (which I haven't gotten around to yet).

Have you made sure that the paths listed in $GEMTBL/grid/gribkey.tbl
exist? The distributed gribkey.tbl file lists a directory of
"data/gempak/model/" for most products (the "data" directory should
exist in /home). This was a problem I encountered once. Files were being

generated, but they ended up not where I expected. The same applies to
the log file directory. Also, be sure that you created a decoders
directory with the "dc" programs (another mistake I once made).

I assume you've already checked for missing tabs in the pqact entries.
Otherwise, you should be getting the files (I'm running version 5.9.2,
but otherwise with the same entries...getting the files
written fine.
