Just a guess, but perhaps the input file is the source of your problem. This
might be possible if you got the file from someone with a different version of
Gempak that has larger limits on the number of X/Y points in the configuration.
Have you tried gdinfo, or gdplot to work with just the input file?

Subject: [gembud] GDVINT: [GDVINT -15] Grid size is too large.
I'm trying to use GDVINT to convert a gem file of RAP data from its native
sigma coordinates to pressure coordinates. Here is my input:
GDFILE Grid file
GDOUTF Output grid file 2014012812_presvcord.gem
GDATTIM Grid date/time f000
GVCORD Grid vertical coordinate sgma:10/pres
GLEVEL Grid level 100-1000-50
MAXGRD Maximum number of grids 5000
GAREA Graphics area 30;-100;50;-60
VCOORD Vertical coordinate type none;hght
However, I encounter this error:
[GDVINT -15] Grid size is too large.
I'm not really sure what this means, since I've tried reducing the GAREA all
the way down to a 1x1 lat/lon square, and MAXGRD to 1, and GLEVEL to
900-1000-50, and even have run with all three of these minimalist settings at
once, yet encounter this error every time. Which thing is too large, and how
do I make that thing smaller?
