However, once I've opened up >mcidas, I can't seem to use the old LA command. LA was retired since it is a non-ADDE command, and McIDAS has evolved into a client-server arcitecture that allows one to ask about information on both local and remote servers. >I see in the source files a la.pgm. Is there something I need to do to get >this compiled? Is this a deprecated command? If so, what is the equivalent? I still include sunsetted commands in the Unidata distribution so that folks that can't live without an old favorite can still build them. I make no guarantees that the command will function correctly, so I advise folks to start learing the ADDE commands that took the place of the old, non-ADDE commands. It might be useful for you to read through the McIDAS Learning Guide to get familiar with the ADDE way of using McIDAS: http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/mcidas/2003/mclearn/index.html As to building the old commands, you can build commands individually. Here is what I would do to build the LA executable and help file: <logon as 'mcidas'> cd mcidas2003/src make la.k make la.hlp ln la.k ~/bin ln la.hlp ~/help This assumes that you are using vendor supplied compilers. If you used gcc/g77 to build McIDAS, the make lines would change to: make la.k VENDOR=-g77 make la.hlp VENDOR=-g77 You can look through the McIDAS makefile (~mcidas/mcidas2003/src/makefile) and find la.pgm. It will be in a section identified as RemovePgm_Srcs, and there will be a number of other commands that have been in the Unidata McIDAS release for some time that you may be able to use. Remember, I make no warranty about the old commands functionality. By the way, can I convince you to upgrade the LDM at UC Davis to the latest Unidata release, LDM-6.0.14 and configure it to report real time statistics back to us? We no longer support LDM-5.x, so upgrading to 6.x would be a good thing. Cheers, Tom > > >-- >"Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act...
