[McIDAS #XRR-599672]: Configuring scouring of McIDAS data

Hi Samuel,

'mcxconfig' does not modify ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf, rather it creates the ldmd.conf
entries that should be used for the McIDAS processing that was selected during
the run.  The user is required to add the entries to ldmd.conf by hand.

Don't forget about the POINT data processing (i.e., scouring of MDXXnnnn files).

Very good.

No worries.

The following _really_ should be a new inquiry as it has nothing to do with the
questions in this thread.

The plot shows that the areal coverage of the fields plotted does not cover the 
US; instead, the fields cover Alaska.

I will need to upgrade the workshop materials to force the use of grids that 
cover the
continental US.

Yup, the grids selected are Alaska grids.  Try adding the keyword sequence 
grids.  This may give you what is needed.
