[netCDF #OML-578835]: AREA to NetCDF conversion

Hi Tom,

Very good.

I understand completely.

OK.  I will try this a bit later today.

In order to create an input ADDE dataset from the images
you want converted, they will need to be accessible to the
user creating the dataset (presumably 'mcidas' in this case)
on which McIDAS will be used. If the images are available
via NFS, then there is no need to copy them over.  If they
are _not_ available, then you will need to copy them to a
directory where they will be available.  I suggest something
like /data/casestudy or anyplace else that you have disk space.
I strongly suggest, that they _NOT_ be copied to the ~mcidas/data
directory as this directory will get overwritten when doing
McIDAS installations.

> Thanks!

No worries.
