[McIDAS #STG-808468]: Conversion of mcidas area to shapefile format

Hi Martha,

Hmm...  that's odd.  if MySQL_ROOT is defined in your environment, mcidas_env.sh
should setup the needed flags to build the distribution with MySQL support.

No worries.  All's well that ends better :-)

OK, this makes sense now.

Did you remember to define the RTGRIBS and RTGRIB2 ADDE datasets from
the 'mcidas' account?  Here is what to do:

<as 'mcidas'>
batch.k XCDGRB2.BAT

You should then be able to do the following and get listings:

grdlist.k RTGRIBS/ALL NUM=20

grdlist.k RTGRIB2/ALL NUM=20

Its all downhill from there...

> Thanks for your help.

No worries.
