Hi Mary Ellen,

The first thing I would do is to look through the makelog file to see if
there is anything strange/unusual/telling to be found when compiling
and linking remap2.k  This may well tell us that the link failed but
the make proceeded anyway which is typical when using the gcc/f2c/mcfc
build environment.

I believe that I also ran remap2.k on one of our Linux boxes back when
you were trying to get this working on your DEC OSF/1 machine.

No, but the approach to building Unidata McIDAS and SSEC McIDAS are
totally different, so you are probably seeing a result of the difference.

In Unidata McIDAS, there is an XRD section of the makefile where I put
several of the XRD routines that I thought would be useful.  remap2.pgm
is, in fact, one of the routines I included in the section.  The full
list is:

UPCXrdPgm_Srcs          = \
                        cldtopo.pgm     \
                        gvarinfo.pgm    \
                        makemap.pgm     \
                        remap2.pgm      \
                        torplot.pgm     \
                        txt2grid.pgm    \
                        windlist.pgm    \
                        windplot.pgm

 ...

UPCXrdC_Srcs            = \
                        swnd2cdf.c

You can build all of these routines in Unidata McIDAS in one go (assuming
you have already built McIDAS) by typing the following:

<login as 'mcidas'>
cd mcidas2002/src
make xrd

You then install the program executables and help files with:

make install.xrd

Also, the formalism for adding more XRD routines to the makefile is
there.  If you read through the XRD section in the make file you
should get the idea of how to add new XRD routines to the list that
you want built with a 'make xrd'.

>Any help you can provide would be a great help.

If the version of remap2 bundled with my v2002 release does not work
on your Linux system, you may need to update the source, remap2.pgm,
in ~mcidas/mcidas2002/src and then retry the build, link, and install.
