Thanks, this might be useful.

Here is a "one-for-one" replacement pqact.conf pattern for users that
file their images in the "McIDAS" manner: use of ROUTE.SYS to name the
output AREA files:

MCIDAS  ^pnga2area Q. (..) (.*) (.*) (.*) (.*) (........) (....)
        PIPE    -close
        -a /usr/local/ldm/etc/SATANNOT -b /usr/local/ldm/etc/SATBAND
        -d /var/data/mcidas -r \1,\2

If you have McIDAS-X installed in /home/mcidas, you can eliminate the
specifications of the '-a' and '-b' flags.

You will, of course, have to change the output data directory to
match your system.

If you want to file your image products directly (for GEMPAK/GARP/NMAP)
I can send out example pqact.conf entries that will do that.

Thanks for the quote!
