[McIDAS #ENV-248133]: GOES Visible reflectance normalization in McIDAS

What is the XRD function/program that you are referring to?

I chose to not bundle all of XRD with Unidata McIDAS as the only thing
that SSEC guarantees is that XRD routines will compile on their set of
supported platforms.  I tried to go through the XRD routines and
incorporate the ones that I thought would be generally useful in Unidata
McIDAS.  Those XRD routines are not built by default, but they are easily
built and installed by sites that have already built Unidata McIDAS:

<as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/mcidas<version>/src
make  OR  make mcx               <- build Unidata McIDAS-X
    then
make XRD

finally:

make install   OR make install.mcx
make install.xrd

If there is an XRD routine that you need that I have not include, it
will incorporate it into my release.

Cheers,

Tom
