[gembud] Building _gif programs in GEMPAK

Hi folks,

We lost an old version of GEMPAK that we had previously built all of the _gif programs in. We use GEMPAK to build images for our web server and would prefer not to deal with X server issues to make our scripts work. (By the way, if anyone knows how to disable the "AUDIT" event that happens with a Redhat X.org configuration, please shoot me an email! We are generating ~15 GB of messages in less than a day.)

Anyway, I found this note from a while ago:


However, the Makefile did not appear to be included in the archive view. We are also hoping to build gdplot2_gif (or gdplot3_gif), so that message looked promising at first.

Here is what I tried to do:

[herbster@zephyr GEMPAK6.4.0]$ pwd


[herbster@zephyr GEMPAK6.4.0]$ cd gempak/source/programs/gd/gdplot2

[herbster@zephyr gdplot2]$ make programs_gif

gfortran -fno-second-underscore -fno-range-check -fd-lines-as-comments 
-I/opt/wrf/Web-Devel/WebTools/gempak/os/linux64/include -g   gdplot2.f 
/opt/wrf/Web-Devel/WebTools/gempak/os/linux64/lib/libbz2.a  -lm -o 

Error: Can't open included file 'MCHPRM.PRM'

make: *** [gdplot2_gif] Error 1

[herbster@zephyr gdplot2]$ grep MCHPRM.PRM ../../../../../find.out


It looks like there is something like an environment variable that has to be set when you start this low in the tree, but I'm out of my league with that guess. There are no errors up to the point where it fails.

I'd be happy to send pieces if you need them.

I know this is an older version of the program. If this is "ready to go" in the latest release let me know. The version I have (6.4.0) has "gpmap_gif" which is why I am using it. (I'd love to have ALL of the GIF enabled programs if there is a systematic way to make that happen.

Thanks in advance!

Best to all,
Chris Herbster
