Re: your mail

Yes, VisAD has a text adapter that can deal with csv files that essentially contain data to be made into a single VisAD Data object. You must, however, add two lines at the beginning of the file to define the math type of the resulting VisAD Data object, and the order of the parameters in the file. The data may be comma, tab, or space-delimited.

All this is described in the readme file at:

http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/~billh/README.text

(the latest copy of this file can be found in the VisAD source code under: visad/data/text/README.text -- the code was recently updated to permit better handling of time formats).

Hi,

Do you know if Visad can work with (import/export) Excel csv files?

Thanks,

Hi Michelle,

I am CC'ing to visad-list since your message to the list
was bounced by our dumb majordomo server because the
subject line included "help".

When you compile VisAD from source, your CLASSPATH environment
variable must include the PARENT directory of visad. So if your
visad package is in /home/michelle/java/visad, then your
CLASSPATH must include /home/michelle/java.

Good luck,
Bill

Hi,

I downloaded the source code for visad and I'm not trying to compile the
.java classes for the spreadsheet. But I'm running into many compile

errors.

I'm wondering if I installed it incorrectly. Are there instructions on how
to get started if I'm compiling only the spread sheet code on a windows
machine?

Thanks,
Michelle Kam
