[McIDAS #IRA-241852]: Error codes for MCIDAS

Hi Da-Lin,

ADDE error codes can be found in the file ~mcidas/mcidas<ver>/src/adderror.doc,
where <ver> is the version of the software.  For example:


> For example, these are the errors they are getting when trying to
> access data from our local server:
> Data service module problem, RC= -1
> Call to MCAGET failed; returned  -98

> We have found a list of error codes for MCAGET, but "-98" is not in
> the list.

The "-98" return is listed in adderror.doc as being:

 -98   CXOUT          CXCOMM  could not find program module - install err

From my experience, this typically indicates that some executable has gotten
damaged.  The quickest way to address the problem would be to rebuild the

<as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/mcidas<ver>/src
make clobber
 -- or --
make all

make install
 -- or --
make install.all
