[McIDAS #OPE-279047]: New Sandwich Command



Hi Mike,

re:

> command has been added.

SSEC added the SANDWICH command to their XRD portion of their McIDAS-X
distribution.  I thought that I had done the same in Unidata McIDAS, but
I see that the source code is not there.

re:

Two things:

- I did not add the SANDWICH command to the Unidata XRD section of v2019

- if the command was there, you would need to build and install the
  XRD portion of the build to be able to use it.

I first thought that ABITRUCOL would be another XRD routine, but I don't see
any source code in either the SSEC core or XRD distribution that contains
'tru' as part of the name.  I did find a McBASI script named ABITRUCOL.MCB
in the data directory portion of XRD in the SSEC release.

re:

No, the XRD portion needs to be built after the main:

make all xrd
make install.all install.xrd

re:

See above.

re:
> Can you confirm for me if the new SANDWICH command is included in v2019,
> and if so what I might need to do to test it out?

It was not, but I just added it to my development build.  I will put the
source, sandwich.pgm, an updated 'makefile', and the ABITRUCOL.MCB
script out on our anonymous FTP server for you to grab and try out:

ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu
user: anonymous
pass: your_email_address
cd pub/mcidas/xrd
files: src/sandwich.pgm src/makefile
       data.ABITRUCOL.MCB

Please make sure to backup your existing 'makefile' before trying to use
the new one!!   Here is what I would try:

<as 'mcidas'>
cd ~/mcidas2019/src
mv makefile makefile.orig
ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu
   ...
cd pub/mcidas/xrd/src
prompt
mget *
cd ../data
lcd ../data
get ABITRUCOL.MCB

make xrd install.xrd

Cheers,

Tom
