I listed the route table and >it looks like it is corrupt. How do I rebuild it? I include a BATCH file in the Unidata McIDAS distribution that is designed to be used as a template for the (re)creation of the routing table, ROUTE.SYS. The idea is for a site to: o make a local copy of DROUTE.BAT: cd ~mcidas/data cp DROUTE.BAT LROUTE.BAT o edit the copy just made to determine which decoding services should be enabled o make those settings active: cd ~mcidas/workdata batch.k LROUTE.BAT This all assumes that your session has been setup to locate ROUTE.SYS in the directory you want. For instance, if the data decoding by ldm-mcidas decoders (the ones that are going to decode Unidata-Wisconsin images into McIDAS AREAs) is /data/ldm/mcidas, then your McIDAS session will need to have a REDIRECTion that says that ROUTE.SYS should be found/used/modified in that directory: cd ~mcidas/workdata redirect.k ADD ROUTE.SYS \"/data/ldm/mcidas This must be done _before_ running the 'batch.k LROUTE.BAT' invocation. Once a new copy of ROUTE.SYS has been made (you should make this during a period when no ldm-mcidas decoder is trying to use it), you must make sure that the read/write permissions on ROUTE.SYS are such that the user running the 'ldm' can read AND write it. Next, to make sure that you have the settings that you want, run the ROUTE command to list out the ROUTE.SYS entries: <as 'mcidas'> cd ~mcidas/workdata route.k LIST If there are actions in the routing table that you want enabled, you can do so at any time from the command line. For instance, if you forgot to turn on compositing of GOES-East and West images in your LROUTE.BAT file, you can do so from the command line: <still as 'mcidas'> cd ~mcidas/workdata route.k REL C and so on. >I enclosed the output of "route.k LIST". S Pd Description Range Last Received Post Process C - -- ------------------------- --------- ------------ ---------- ------------ - ????????????????????????? 2144-???? 62144 0621 ???????????? 4 ... This is definitely corrupt. You option is to delete it and recreate a new one as I outlined above. Tom
