Re: [gembud] GAREA with IATA ID

To answer my own question, it looks like $GEMTBL/stns/sfstns.tbl has changed, with all identifiers standardized to four letters. (On the other hand, $GEMTBL/stns/snstns.tbl still uses three-letter IDs for CONUS upper-air stations.)

Hi all,

I have noticed that in the latest version of GEMPAK, using
garea = top
doesn't work ( [GG -2]  Area top is an invalid graphics area.)
but
garea = ktop
does work.

In past versions, the three-letter ID works fine, and I can restore that
functionality to the current version by doing:
export GEMTBL=/home/gempak/GEMPAK6.8.0/gempak/tables

which implies some table has changed to prevent the three-letter IDs
from working.

Does anyone have any ideas about what changed, and whether it was
intentional?

Thanks,
Steve
