Hi Pat,

Here is an example FILE action that can be used to write the Level II
volume scans into individual files by time:

# NEXRAD2 data stored as raw bz2
        FILE    data/nexrad/level2/\1/\1_\2_\3_\4

NB: all of the whitespace in the example action above are tabs, not spaces!

Since having the correct syntax for LDM pattern action files is crucial, we
_strongly_ recommend that the person adding a new or modifying an existing
pattern-action entry do the following:

<as 'ldm'>
-- verify that the LDM's configuration file ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf has an
   'exec' line that will run 'pqact' for the pattern-action file modified

-- modify the appropriate pattern-action file

-- check the integrity of the pattern action file modified:

ldmadmin pqactcheck

   If the there is an indication of a problem (syntax error, etc.)
   with the pattern-action file just modified, edit it again and
   remove the error(s).

-- if the LDM is already running, send a HUP signal so that the
   pattern-action file will be reread:

ldadmin pqactHUP

   If the LDM was not already running, then you should start it:

ldmadmin start

Please let us know if you have any questions about this procedure.
