Hello, When running shell scripts invoking McIDAS, I am only able to draw maps/etc. in about 12 unique colors. I'm fairly certain that McIDAS has a much larger palate than that.....any idea as to why this occurs? My mcevn command is the following: Mcenv -f address@hidden -g 32 -I 128 << 'EOF' Thanks, Travis Martin Software Engineer Weathernews Americas Inc. 415-848-5261 (Office)=20 415-265-7093 (Mobile) 415-848-5201 (Fax) www.us.weathernews.com <http://www.us.weathernews.com/> =20 Weathernews, the world's largest, publicly-traded, full-service weather company Date: Thu, 29 Jan 2004 12:06:04 -0600 From: Rick Kohrs <address@hidden> To: address@hidden Subject: Re: Colors When you say 12 unique colors, what do you mean. Is the map command failing? If not, try using GU to define a new color. GU MAKE 16 PINK Rick Date: Thu, 29 Jan 2004 10:12:34 -0800 From: "Travis Martin" <address@hidden> To: <address@hidden> I'll give that a shot. What I mean is if I use, say MAP X 10 is gives me a Salmon color but so does MAP X 26. So the color pallet seems to just wrap around on itself. I'll use GU MAKE and see what I can come up with.

The number of colors dedicated to graphics is in the Ucword UC_NUMBER_GRAPHICS. --johnb Date: Thu, 29 Jan 2004 11:05:30 -0800 From: "Travis Martin" <address@hidden> To: <address@hidden> Thanks John, Rick's suggestion to simply use GU MAKE <some level> <some color> worked beautifully. _____ Travis Martin Weathernews Americas Inc.
