20021024: Figured it out...but I don't know why...


The PIL that is on the line of the product following the
WMO identifier is supposed to be padded to 6 characters
to be recognized as a valid PIL, so that other strings like
"METAR" are not accidentally considered to be a PIL.

The products ASUS43 KCHI which have the PIL identifier
SWRIL are supposed to use "SWRIL " (trailing space padded to
6 characters), however, you are seeing products where they
have omitted the trailing space, and so the LDM identifier
used in the IDD does not contain a /p... tag added by the
pqing ingestor. This means that the way the product is created
at KCHI has changed. This is independent of the ouput
I provided you yesterday from my ingestor which does not use pqing.

I can relax the padding requirement of the PIL string in pqing
to catch the malformed products (at the expense of some spurrious
4 and 5 character PILs).
