[McIDAS #NHQ-322642]: MDX files

Hi Paul,

> I hope all your travels find you back at home safe and sound.

Yes, thanks.

OK.  The command sequence you should have run if decoding was not working

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

If the ADDE dataset definitions were somehow lost (e.g., the file RESOLV.SRV
in the $MCDATA directory of the user 'mcidas was deleted or damaged), then
BATCH LSSERVE.BAT would be what was needed.

Me either.

> Can you help?

Sure, I can take a look to see what I can see.  Are we talking about the
McIDAS/LDM installations on climate?
