[McIDAS #EIJ-330346]: McIDAS GRID file problem

Hi Mark,

Latest update on GRID decoding:

Adding an entry to NOGRIB.CFG uncovered a bug in xcdgrib.c that would result
in DMGRID (dmgrid.k) producing segmentation violations every time a CWDI grid
was processed.  I found and corrected the problem this morning and just released
addendum v2006c.

Here is what you need to do to install the addendum:

<login to your XCD machine as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/mcidas2006/update

ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu
  <user> xxxxx
  <pass> xxxxx
  cd unix/2006/bugfix
  get mcupdate.tar.gz
  get mcupdate
  get mcupdate.list.2006c

chmod +x ./mcupdate

cd ../src
make all

<as 'ldm'>
ldmadmin stop

<back as 'mcidas' still in the ~mcidas/mcidas2006/src directory>
make install.all

<back as 'ldm'>
ldmadmin start

The addendum installation will result in

- a new DMGRID executable (dmgrid.k)
- in a new copy of NOGRIB.CFG in the ~mcidas/workdata directory

The new DMGRID executable now honors NOGRIB.CFG entries for GRIB messages
to not decode.

Also included in this addendum are:

- inclusion of FY-2C (Chinese Meteorological Agency geostationary
  satellite) bands in ADDEIMAGE.CORE (MCGUI functionality)
- uncommenting of RTNEXRAD definitions in ADDEIMAGE.CORE (MCGUI functionality)
- modification of the PATH command to give the user control over plotting
  small boxes at path points
- update of NLDNDISP to support USPLN lightning data
- update of NLDN MD file schema, DCNLDN, to support USPLN lightning data
- small bugfix in XCD configuration script, xcdconfig
- addition of CSU/CIRA enhancement, TPWC2.ET

Please let me know if the DMGRID modifications stop the grid processing
problems on your FreeBSD 4.10 system.
