Re: [gembud] Converting config files: RUC to RAP -- SOLVED

Solved.

My confusion was that I didn't recognize that these were map
projections. (That's the problem when things run perfectly well for
weeks and months and even years -- you forget what it is actually
doing!) I replaced the RUC configuration with this and it seems to work:

---
NCEP:/pub/data/nccf/com/rap/prod/rap.YYMD/rap.tCCz.awp236pgrbfFF.grib2
TOC:/SL.us008001/ST.opnl/MT.rap_CY.CC/RD.YYMD/PT.grid_DF.gr2/fh.00FF_tl.
