OK, sounds interesting.

You will want to work entirely in Linux, so you will need to download the
v2015 Unidata Unix Source Code Distribution.

Send your inquiries to address@hidden  Since I am _the_ McIDAS
support person here in Unidata, I will be answering your question(s).

By the way, I can help you get the VMware code setup on your Windows machine.
I did the same thing with another user, and it is a fairly painless process
if you have some understanding of Unix/Linux.  Please let me know when you
are ready to proceed.

> Thanks again,

No worries.
