Re: FW: Problem with DumpType

Thanks, Ken.

Bill has made changes to the README to deal a little more explicitly
with the Window's environment -- hopefully this will help folks in the
future.

Tom,

     In regard to my problems building VisAD with Nmake:

     It worked with CLASSPATH=C:\Java\VisAD, which is the parent of the
visad directory for me.  (My Java\VisAD is your src.)

     I was previously using CLASSPATH = ..;., then
CLASSPATH=C:\Java\VisAD;C:\Java\VisAD\visad.  (See below near the end.)  The
reason is that the readme (http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/~billh/README) says to
use both:

-----------------------------------------------------
...
Your CLASSPATH sould include:

  1. The parent directory of your visad directory.
  2. The current directory.
...
-----------------------------------------------------

     Looks like the makefile is fine but readme should be changed.

     Thanks for your help.  It certainly saved my working on it until I
figured that out.  I would really like to get it to build in Eclipse, but
being able to build at least somewhere is good.  Unfortunately (or
fortunately ;-) I will be going on vacation and can't spend the time just
now.

        -Ken

Hi Ken:

It looks like a CLASSPATH problem (at least to begin with).  The
CLASSPATH must be set to the parent directory.  For example, if your
VisAD source code is in:  c:\src\visad\
then CLASSPATH should be set to "c:\src".  I usually use this:  "c:\src;.\"

Please give that a try....and let me know....

Regards,

tom
