This one is MY fault.  The last line above is incomplete!  It should
have read:

ln xsect.k xsectg.k ~/bin

What happened was that a hard link was made between xsect.k and xsectg.k
in the ~mcidas/mcidas7.7/src directory.  What needed to happen was
to build new xsect.k and xsectg.k executables and link then to the
~mcidas/bin directory.  My screwup, sorry!

This was because there was no xsect.k or xsectg.k in ~mcidas/bin on pileus.

Shoot me now!

I took you up on your offer of getting on pileus (I had to go through
waldo since pileus.stcloudstate.edu was not a recognized host from
my sessions here at Unidata).  To correct the problem I caused, I did
the following:

cd mcidas7.7/src
rm xsect.k xsectg.k xsect.o xsectg.o
make xsect.k xsectg.k
ln xsect.k xsectg.k ~/bin

Now there are viable executables where they should be.


Sorry for the previous bad advice.
