[McIDAS #ZHQ-767263]: Fwd: Unidata website registration confirmation and pas sword

Hi Bernie,

> Thanks for the update.  Please let me know how to get the update when
> it's ready and how to install it.

The new application I created for Unidata McIDAS-X was added to a new
addendum, v2008b, for the package about a half hour ago.  The new addendum
should be installed as follows:

<login as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/mcidas2008/update
-- download the addendum file, mcupdate.tar.gz to this directory


cd ../src

make mcx
make install.mcxall

The new routine is a McIDAS application:

- it is named GVARRDIR

- its executable is gvarrdir.k

- the executable gets installed in the ~mcidas/bin directory

- the online help for GVARRDIR is accessed by running:


  from the McIDAS Text and Command Window

Basically, the program will create/update a 'descriptor file' in the
same directory as the raw GVAR files you download from CLASS.  GVARRDIR
is run once per image file you have as follows:


- assume that you put your raw GOES-8 GVAR files and .INDX files in the
  directory /data/gvar/goes8

- further assume that the files are named:


From a McIDAS session, you would run the command:

GVARRDIR /data/gvar/goes8/goes08.2000.275.004515 ALL

to extract needed information out of the file goes08.2000.275.004515
and write that information into the file 'ALL' in the same directory.

GVARRDIR is smart enough to not write duplicate entries into the descriptor

You would create a McIDAS ADDE dataset that can access the data using
the DSSERVE command in a manner similar to the following:

DSSERVE ADD GOES8/ALL GVAR 1 99999 DIRFILE=/data/gvar/goes8 "GOES-8 raw GVAR 
images from CLASS

After running GVARRDIR for the two files listed above, and after creating an 
dataset, you should be able to list out the contents of the images using IMGLIST
as follows:

Image file directory listing for: GOES8/ALL
 Pos Satellite/         Date       Time      Center   Band(s)
     sensor                                 Lat  Lon
 --- -------------  ------------  --------  ---- ---- ------------
   1  G-8 IMG        1 OCT 00275  00:15:00    22   71 1-5
   2  G-8 IMG        1 OCT 00275  00:45:00    14   72 1-5

Please let me know about any questions you have on how to run GVARRDIR.
