[McIDAS #BUU-210466]: 20200611: Reading in RESOLV.SRV and himawari update



Hi Carol,

The ins and outs of how McIDAS finds files is, in my opinion, _the_
most complicated part of the entire system.  Explaining all of the
precedence rules is, quite frankly, hard to do in words, but, luckily,
it is a lot more easily done face-to-face.

This looks very good!

re:

What is best or worst is probably situational.

I didn't even tell you about the third way of attaching the
problem - setup the remote ADDE server on the machine, and have
the McIDAS routes "point" (DATALOC) at the remote ADDE server
for its data.  This approach is probably the best since it really
separates the roles that the user and 'mcidas' take.  It does,
however, require setup that only can be done by 'root'.  I
can elaborate on this approach if you like...


Cheers,

Tom
