Hi Christian,

Ah Ha!  The cause of your problem may be your pointing to the
RTGINI dataset on pscwx.plymouth.edu.  Here is why I say this:

DATALOC ADD RTGINI PSCWX.PLYMOUTH.EDU

Group Name                    Server IP Address
--------------------         ----------------------------------------
RTGINI                       PSCWX.PLYMOUTH.EDU

<LOCAL-DATA> indicates that data will be accessed from the local data directory.
DATALOC -- done
 
IMGLIST RTGINI/GSN8KIR
Image file directory listing for:RTGINI/GSN8KIR
IMGLIST: There are no images that meet the selection criteria
IMGLIST: done
IMGLIST failed, RC=2

Hmm... G-8 data is not available at all anymore.  I am guessing
that some of the composite images you want to access are labeled
as being G-8.

OK (I think).  I believe, however, that you have the data you
want (GSN8KIR) on your local ADDE server (at least you should
have this data).  It will exist, however, in the GINIEAST,
GINIWEST, and/or GINICOMP datasets.  Try the following:

DSINFO IMAGE GINIEAST

You should see an entry for the GSN8KIR images:

GSN8KIR      99999    GINI 8 km 10.7 um Super-National

If you do see that these are defined, try listing them:

IMGLIST GINIEAST/GSN8KIR.ALL

If the list is OK, it means that your GINIEAST dataset is setup
as per my recommendations in the GINIADDE.BAT BATCH file.  At
this point, I would recommend that you use your own server for
the data as the access will be much faster and you shouldn't
run into a situation where the IMGCOPY hangs due to network
congestion or other things out of your control.

re: why not run all McIDAS commands within one 'mcenv' invocation

You can create a McIDAS session ('mcenv' creates McIDAS sessions)
specifying that you want a variety of differently sized frames.
For instance, the following will create a McIDAS session with
1 frame that is 512x512 (frame 1) and another that is 1024x1024:

mcenv -f address@hidden -f address@hidden
f.k

   Video Status for Your Workstation
                              Frames(s)
                              ---------
Number Available                  2
Current                           1   (Opp =  2 )
Loop Bounds                    1 to   2
Visible (K & W toggle)          Yes / Yes
Looping (L toggle)               No
Cursor parameters: Size =   31 /   31         Type = Xhair
        Center position =   10 /   10         Color = RED

Image frames   1 -   1     with imbedded graphics    are  512 BY  512
Image frames   2 -   2     with imbedded graphics    are 1024 BY 1024

exit

You will need to modify your script to specify which frame(s) you
want to display images/label/do contours, etc.  Here are example
modifications you will need to make to your script 'make_g8':

 ....

mcenv -f address@hidden -f address@hidden << EOF

set -vx
logon.k USER 0278

sf.k 1                                       <- addition

gu.k MAKE 7 BLACK
gu.k MAKE 5 BLACK
gu.k MAKE 2 YELLOW
gu.k MAKE 4 YELLOW
imgdisp.k $adde STA=CYUL MAG=2 EU=XREC SF=YES
eg.k 1;map.k VH 8;bar.k COL=8 SU=TEMPC 1

 ...

sf.k 2                                      <- addition

gu.k MAKE 6 RED
imgdisp.k $adde STA=CYUL MAG=4 EU=XREC SF=YES
eg.k 2;map.k VH 8;bar.k COL=8 SU=TEMPC 1    <- modification
frmlabel.k LEVEL=120 0 \"GOES-12 IR 4KM \(DAY\) \(HHMM\) meteocentre.com

frmsave.k 2 mtl_ir.gif                      <- modification

frmlabel.k LEVEL=120 0 \"GOES-12 IR 4KM \(DAY\) \(HHMM\) meteocentre.com

 ...

The changes are, of course, not hard.  You just have to remember
which frame you want to do things in.

OK.  I tried to point at kepler.sca.uqam.ca to see if I could list
what images are in your GINIEAST dataset, but I got the following
error:

DATALOC ADD GINIEAST KEPLER.SCA.UQAM.CA
DATALOC: Could not resolve KEPLER.SCA.UQAM.CA. Entry not filed.
DATALOC -- done
DATALOC failed, RC=2

Looks like DNS is not yet setup for kepler...

>Many thanks,

No worries.

Cheers,
