[gembud] GEMPAK 6.2.0 Update: 4bit/8bit radar images & VAD support

Hi all,

I appreciate you guys bringing these problems to my attention.

I've addressed the 4bit vs. 8bit radar image handling and updated the im / imnids library to handle VAD files (imnids routines lacked proper function prototype declarations).

The updates can be found here (contents listed below):

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/mjames/gempak/gempak_upc6.2.0-upd-201101.tar.gz



Instructions:

* save tarball to $NAWIPS
* tar -xvzf gempak_upc6.2.0-upd-201101.tar.gz
* cd $GEMPAK/source/gemlib/im/
* make all

for GPVAD:
* cd $NAWIPS/unidata/programs/gpvad/
* make all;make install

to confirm GPVAD works:

GEMPAK-GPVAD>
 RADFIL   = NEXRIII|FFC|NVW
 RADTIM   = last
 WIND     = bk1
 TITLE    = 1/-2/VAD DISPLAY ~
 PANEL    = 0
 DEVICE   = XW
 CLEAR    = y
 TEXT     = 1/1/1/hw
 CLRBAR   = 1/v/cl/.05;.5/.3;.01
 OUTPUT   = T
GEMPAK-GPVAD>r
