Thanks for this information.  The other piece of information I could
use is the version of McIDAS.  What is the output of:

cat ~mcidas/data/VERSION.TXT

>If you have any suggestion, I would appreciate it.

I extracted servutil.c out of the copy of the 7.7 distribution that is
currently in the unix/770 directory of our passworded McIDAS FTP directory
and see that the version of servutil.c looks different than the output
you sent along:

This output is indicating that the variable 'e' is defined as a 'char'
when it should be defined as a 'char *'.  This problem was corrected in
one of the addenda that has been released for 7.7.  I see that
you (U. Delaware) grabbed 7.7 in December:

climate.geog.udel.edu         Mon Dec 18 11:21:16 2000

Since there have been four addendum upgrades since the end of December,
I recommend that you grab and install the addendum fixes (the McIDAS
addenda are cumulative: each new addenda includes all of the mods since
the previous addenda).

Information on McIDAS addenda are available in:

Unidata McIDAS Addendum Information

This page has links to the various addenda information pages and a link
to how to grab and install an addendum.

Please let me know if upgrading to the latest addendum doesn't fix this
problem for you.

Thank you for your quick reply.  I downloaded newer version and then I
could compile without any problem.   I should have looked at your web
page more carefully.

Thank you again.
