CYD is the current date format.  CYD means that the date should look
like CCYYDDD.  The old date format was SYD.  SYD dates looked like
ssYYDDD, where ss was a rarely used sensor source number.

nldn2md is part of the ldm-mcidas package.  The latest ldm-mcidas
decoders are available as binaries in the pub/binary/<os> directories
of anonymous FTP on our FTP server, ftp.unidata.ucar.edu.

If the DAY format listed out when you do an:

MDL 71         (substitute the MD file number for your NLDN MD file)

looks like 1999259 (substitute the current day), then your NLDN
decoder is most likely up to date.  If your date looks like 99259, then
you need to get and install the new ldm-mcidas decoders.  If you
are going to do this on your Sun SPARC machine, and if you are running
Solaris 2.7, then you would need to grab the file:

user: anonymous
pass: your_full_email_address
machine: ftp.unidata.ucar.edu
directory: pub/binary/sunos_5.7-sparc
file: ldm-mcidas.tar.Z

Make sure to get the file in binary mode!
