I took the pattern for the name from the entry that I believe you sent
to Anne in the first place.  You can, of course, name the file anything
you like.

Since the sufficies you want to use can not be created from any
information contained in the product header, you will need to create a
separate entry for each of the products you want to file.  The example
decoder entries contained in the file ldm-mcidas-pqact.conf distributed
with ldm-mcidas can be viewed from a link from:


This file contains examples of doing just this sort of thing you will
need to do.


No worries.
