20020920: ** McIDAS - -displayVisualMode (cont.)

re: -displayVisualMode

I created replacements for three McIDAS-X 2002 routines that allow for
the flag -displayVisualMode specified in ~/.mcidasrc to be passed along
to mcimage upon MCGUI startup.  The files that needed modifications
are: mcstart.gui, mcgui.k, and upcguiprocs.tcl.

I rolled the new versions of these routines into the compressed tar
file dispvismode.tar.Z which can be found in the pub/mcidas/src
directory of anonymous FTP on our FTP server, ftp.unidata.ucar.edu.

Here is how to install the new routines:

<login as 'mcidas'>

cd mcidas2002/update

ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu
  <user> anonymous
  <pass> your full email address
  cd pub/mcidas/src
  get dispvismode.tar.Z

zcat dispvismode.tar.Z | tar xvf -

cd ../src
rm mcidas
ln mcstart.gui mcidas
rm ~/bin/mcidas
ln mcidas ~/bin

Just to make sure, verify that the copy of mcgui.k, upcguiprocs.tcl, and
mcstart.gui are the same in ~mcidas/bin and ~mcidas/mcidas2002/src:

cd ~mcidas/mcidsa2002/src
ls -alt mcgui.k ~/bin/mcgui.k
ls -alt upcguiprocs.tcl ~/bin/upcguiprocs.tcl
ls -alt mcstart.gui ~/bin/mcstart.gui

If the files are different, the copies in ~/bin must be removed and a
link (hard if ~/bin and ~/mcidas2002/src are on the same file system;
a soft link otherwise) made from the copy in ~/mcidas2002/src and

Please let me know the results of using the new copies of these files.

The fix that you had me download and install seems to have
done the trick.  At least I have not been able to duplicate 
the problems that I was having earlier.  I guess the real 
test will come later in the week when the McIDAS users 
test it out.  

Thanks for the quick response with the fix.  I certainly
appreciate it.
