>hmmmm, really?

What I meant is that there is no guarantee that a product with a
particular header will come across first.

SENNMC is archaic since the mainframe doesn't exist anymore.  I
am suprised that NMCAMT core dumps.  This is not good.  The other
place you might want to look for status information on XCD decoding
is in the file ~mcidas/workdata/DECOSTAT.DAT.  You can look at the
contents of this file from a 'mcidas' McIDAS session by running the
STAT (in McIDAS) or statdisp (outside of McIDAS).  If DECOSTAT.DAT
has enough information to help you out (it might), you would have
to write a program to read the file and do what you want if what you
see is current.

Quickly, you can see when the NGM files typically come in and then
create a cron entry in the 'mcidas' account to run your script(s).

re: not hard but tedious
>its *all* tedious- 

Putting in a cron job should be pretty quick. You can do this and tidy
up later.
