The only thing that I could imagine being different with the
environment is your MCPATH or possibly your set of file REDIRECTions if
you use them.

I'm glad to hear it!

I did run into one other thing when building your version of remap2 on
a Sun.  The routine cloudp.c uses an array named 'sun', and this causes
a problem on Sun since 'sun' is a C define there.  In order to get this
to work, I changed the name of your array to 'sun_t' and then
everything worked.

By the way, I was thinking of adding your remap2 routine to my McIDAS
distribution renamed to remap2_tasc.pgm.  In order to do this, I would
rename cloudp.c to cloudp_tas.c and go ahead and include sza.c in
cloudp_tasc.c.  I would add the routine in my XRD section of the
makefile (build the XRD/MDF routines I include by running 'make xrd'
and 'make install.xrd' from the distribution src directory) if I have
your/TASC's permission to do so.

Please let me know if the inclusion of your routine is OK.  Thanks.
