[McIDAS #CLA-376903]: GLM plots



Hi Carol,

Sort of, but not exactly.

re:
> But if you're using TIME=IMA then it shouldn't matter.

The actual problem is that GLMDISP is a front end to PTDISP, and the
SELECT= keyword specifies multiple days to search.  The current
rule for archive datasets is that the data be stored by day, and
one must specify a single day.

Here is the kind of output that one sees when trying to plot
archive GLM group data (this test invocation is not fully fleshed
out, but it wouldn't matter if it was):

GLMDISP X 2 DAY=310 DAT=GOESRALL/GLMGROUP
Plotting GLM data from GOESRALL/GLMGROUP.ALL
pipe read: Connection reset by peer
PTDISP: When using archive data you must specify SELECT= with a single DAY value
PTDISP: Failed at SERVER REQUEST step
GLMDISP - done

The two errors that are shown are:

- pipe read: Connection reset by peer

  This is noted in the inquiry that is open for this problem.  This is somewhat
  of a red herring.

- PTDISP: When using archive data you must specify SELECT= with a single DAY 
value

  This is because GLMDISP is putting together a SELECT= keyword clause that 
specifies
  more than one day of data, and this violates the current design of archive
  datasets.

Aside:  I will be very interested to see what approach is taken to get around
the second error!

I was lucky enough to participate in the PEP project in Spain in 1980 and
1981.  We were on site in central Spain for 4 months (!) each year, so I
got to know a lot about Spain and come to dearly love it.  Hopefully,
you have enough time to do some exploring in Argentina (Mendoza area?)!

More than one site representative can go to MUG meetings, so it may be
possible.  The final determination would depend on whether or not the MUG
(probably Becky) considers the site Unidata or UCAR/NCAR.  We have always
considered the site to be UCAR/NCAR, but our view is just our opinion.
We'll see when the time gets nearer.

Cheers,

Tom
