I am sorry that I was unable to check out your problem earlier this
week.  Things have been hectic around here with the NWS change to the
NOAAPORT datastream for GINI data (I had thought that this was supposed
to occur at the beginning of September); having to put together an
abstract for the Seattle AMS meeting; and trying to get a McIDAS-X
v2003 distribution ready for release.  This morning I finally feel that
I have time to attend to some _other_ pressing matters one of which was

As far as why you had to delete and recreate the *.RAP files several
times, the only thing I can think of is that your LDM was running when
you made the changes.  Either that, or you may have needed to delete
the index file ~mcidas/workdata/DCLSTIDX.PTR.  The latter is the
most likely since the things that were failing for you, SFCLIST
and SFCCON are MD file related, not *.RAP/*.RAT file related.

By the way, I stuck out the v2003 distribution yesterday afternoon.  I
had intended to do a round robin of installs on various ADDE servers
under my control before announcing it, but I figure that you may want
to grab it early (like another site did this morning).

I am glad to hear that things are now working.

re: v2003
I will go ahead and get it and install it on this machine here.

>Thanks as always.   If you guys are sending someone to the NWS meeting
on Aug. 13, I'll see them there.
