Bill,

re: TD cross section problem was a typo

>That did the trick, thanks.

I always like to hear that things work :-)

Your instincts were entirely correct.  The way that the keyword documentation
for commands is to be interpreted is:

PARam=  -> PAR=, PARA=, and PARAM= all will work

Me too!

The problem is that they have more users of McIDAS than Unidata.  Since
the other users are not rebundling McIDAS into their own distribution,
they _are_ getting it at the beginning of the summer.  The problem I
have is that the Unidata distribution is significantly different
(enhanced) from the SSEC one, so it takes me time to create it from
what I get from SSEC.

>Can anyone help you test/upgrade a new version from

I am _the_ McIDAS support person at the UPC.

We will probably have to let this rest for now.  The fact that I
have direct access to the CVS code repository at SSEC helps me
introduce Unidata-specific code modifications into the core so that
the job of integrating my changes with the offical release becomes
easier with time.  It is, in fact, significantly easier now than
in the past, but it still takes too much time to produce a new
distribution.

Got to run...

Tom
