[McIDAS #VMB-838792]: Meteosat conversion

Hi Bernie,

re: when you say "run a few Meteosat images through McIDAS" what exactly
do you mean?

OK.  The output format for AXFORM is very simple/straightforward, so I
would imagine that it should be easy to import the data into a different
application like IDL.  The question in my mind is how the IDL stuff
that Liam wrote works/what it expects?

re: were the images looked at first?

Perhaps.  Is the original Meteosat data and its AREA file conversion
available?  The different formats would help me ascertain if there is
something wrong with AXFORM.
