Hmm... No, not if you are running on a Linux system. Here, for example, is the same 'file' invocation on another user's Fedora Core Linux system: $ file /home/ldm/decoders/bin/pnga2area /home/ldm/decoders/bin/pnga2area: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped >Also, on the pqact line, the -v1 was my typing a "one" in my e-mail to >you. I didn't edit that part of the pqaact.gempak_images file, so I >presume it's actually an "ell" in the file. OK. You musth have edited the pqact.conf entry for GEMPAK because the examples provided by GEMPAK don't include the '-a' and '-b' flags. >If this pnga2area file is corrupt, where do I find a new copy of the >file? I'm using the Linux binary 5.8.3a. Given the results of you running 'file ~ldm/decoders/pnga2area' I am guessing that you got/will get an error if you try to run pnga2area from the command line: <as 'ldm'> ~ldm/decoders/pnga2area <- will list out help info if it runs If trying to run this from the command line fails, then you should grab a binary distribution of the ldm-mcidas decoders for your system. The quickest way to do this is using anonymous FTP: machine: ftp.unidata.ucar.edu user: anonymous pass: address@hidden directory: pub/binary/linux_2.4-i686 <- if your Linux machine is running the 2.4 kernel pub/binary/linux_2.6-i686 <- if your linux machine is running the 2.6 kernel file: ldm-mcidas-2004.tar.Z You determine which kernel your system is using by running: uname -a I suggest that you unpack this as follows in your ldm account: <as 'ldm'> cd ~ldm mkdir ldm-mcidas mv ldm-mcidas-2004.tar.Z ldm-mcidas tar xvzf ldm-mcidas-2004.tar.Z rm ldm-mcidas-2004.tar.Z ln -s ldm-mcidas-2004 runtime ln -s runtime/* . cd bin file ./pnga2area If this looks correct, then run: cp pnga2area ~/decoders >Thank you and have a nice holiday weekend.
