Hmmm ftp.ssec.wisc.edu? I don't see the file.

Sorry, the main Makefile is  in the visad subdirectory. The third
line of make compile, the rmic line assumes -- i think -- that
one is in the directory one level higher.

I believe I had to also set my CLASSPATH to include the directory 
containing visad to get the compile to suceed. Perhaps that is why the rmic
line failed.

I did eventually get everything  running so I could try the examples.
Why the `delay' printouts in DisplayTest?

My mother told me that no one was worthless. Even those so bad to be
considered worthless by others were `good' as bad examples.

One should have a FAQ, even if it has only one line saying

VISAD is so new there are no entries in the FAQ yet.
