[McIDAS #TXI-564922]: Re: 20060804: Unidata McIDAS-X/XCD v2006 is now available

If you had an existing 'mcidas' login and your SHELL is the C shell, you 
probably
need to do a 'rehash'.

For reference, I just logged onto weather.admin.niu.edu as 'mcidas' and did the
following:

<as 'mcidas' on weather.admin.niu.edu.
which mcguiReform.tcl
/home/mcidas/bin/mcguiReform.tcl

cd workdata

mcguiReform.tcl ADDESERVER.CORE.BACKUP ADDESERVER.SITE
unmatched open brace in list
    while executing
"llength $line"
    ("foreach" body line 10)
    invoked from within
"foreach line $input {

  if { [string length $line] == 0 } {
    lappend output $line
  } else {
    set line1 [string toupper $line 0 2]
    if { [st..."
    (file "/home/mcidas/bin/mcguiReform.tcl" line 30)

I thought that this was weird until I looked at the contents of
your ~mcidas/workdata/ADDESERVER.CORE.BACKUP.  Here are the first few
lines:

REM ADDE Servers by Group

CIMSS { \
    PAPAGAYO.UNL.EDU \
    CACIMBO.GGY.UGA.EDU \
    PSCWX.PLYMOUTH.EDU \
    WEATHER2.ADMIN.NIU.EDU \
    WEATHER3.ADMIN.NIU.EDU \
    STRATUS.AL.NOAA.GOV \
    ATM.GEO.NSF.GOV \
    ADDE.UCAR.EDU \
    LOCAL-DATA
}

This is the wrong file!  mnguiReform.tcl reformats the entries in an image
display defaults file.  This would include the ADDEIMAGE.CORE.NIU and 
ADDEIMAGE.USER
files in ~mcidas/workdata.

See above.

Here is what happens when I run the following command:

<still as 'mcidas' from the ~mcidas/workdata directory>
mcguiReform.tcl ADDEIMAGE.USER ADDEIMAGE.new
Writing ADDEIMAGE.new ...

less ADDEIMAGE.new

You would now need to:

- edit ADDEIMAGE.new and set the list of servers that support the G8-GHCC and 
RTNOWRAD
  datasets

- rename ADDEIMAGE.new to ADDEIMAGE.USER

- stop and restart McIDAS/MCGUI or use the Configure dropdown in MCGUI to load
  in the image defaults in the manner I indicated in my previous email

NOTE CAREFULLY:  do NOT the files you want to convert in your $MCDATA directory.
  After converting them, either delete the orginals or move them off into
  a backup directory somewhere.  This is important!
 

Cheers,

Tom
