OK, so AXFORM, or some routine that it calls, has a problem with the
word size on OSF/1.  Since AXFORM is a standard McIDAS application, I
am hard pressed to _not_ support it :-)

Its not you, it is the OSF/1 box!


Would it be possible for me to get one of the AREA files that you
are having problems with?  This will be crutial in troubleshooting.
It would be best if I could FTP the file from your, or, if that is not
possible, you could FTP it to me:

machine: ftp.unidata.ucar.edu
user: umcidas
pass: XXXXXX
directory: incoming/data
mode: binary

Who knows, with a little luck it may be that AXFORM calls the same routine
that needs an OSF/1 fix as REMAP does.  You got to hope...

        I'll attempt an ftp of the AREA file to you tomorrow when our sys
admin can hook me up so to speak....in the meantime I think that you might
be able to recreate the problem by remapping an image file and then running
axform.k on it.         Here's an interesting thing...I linked to the
axform.k executable from unidata v7.7 and it works!  So, it's something with
our compile/link to v7.8. I checked the compile log files from when we
installed v7.8 and there were no warnings or errors when it compiled

        I have uploaded an area file to the ftp site you gave me. The name
of the file is AREA2000 and is located in /incoming/data on the unidata ftp
site unidata.ucar.edu.  Let me know what results you get by running on
axform on your dec alpha. Just to let you know I'll be on a business trip
all of next week and I won't be able to check emails.  Thanks for your help.
