Happy New Year to you also!

Displaying the imagery how?  What exactly did you run; from what machine(s)
did you run it; what user were you logged in as when you ran it?

Logged in as 'mcidas' (I took the liberty), I can list and display
the various images from a MCGUI invocation.  I was also able to plot
and coutour surface data with no apparent problems..

Hmm...  I did the following in the 'mcidas' account to make the REDIRECTions
in ~mcidas/workdata/LWPATH.NAM ordered:

cd ~mcidas/data
redirect.k ADD LWPATH.NAM \".

It was after this that I ran my tests.

Hmm...  Perhaps the redirect.k action above fixed up your REDIRECTions
to the point that they would work.  This doesn't make sense to me,
however, since I was able to list the data before doing this, and
I could see the newer images.

Things did seem to be setup correctly, so aside from the redirect.k
stuff above, I don't have a clue unless this was done from a different


If the problem is with a different account, I suggest trying the
redirect.k action above (in the ~user/mcidas/data directory for that

>Thanks in advance!

No problem.  Please keep me posted.
