----------- General News.
As of sometime today, the TOC (I'm not sure what that stands for) started putting out the 2 new experimental elements into their correct directories.
I had guessed that they would name them "ds.apparentt.bin" and "ds.rh.bin". Unfortunately they chose "ds.apt.bin" and "ds.rhm.bin". This means that you can either download 1.72, or modify "/degrib/bin/ndfd.ini".
If you choose to modify "ndfd.ini", then you need to find:
"apparentt=Apparent Temperature,expr,ApparentT,expr,expr,expr,NA" and
and change them to:
"apt=Apparent Temperature,expr,ApparentT,expr,expr,expr,NA" and
----------- News about this release:
I have just finished putting together version "1.72" (last one that I
announced was "1.70" on 6/15/2005).
This release is only focused on handling "ds.rhm.bin" and "ds.apt.bin".
1) Reconfigured ndfd.ini to handle ds.rhm.bin and ds.apt.bin
2) Updated htmlmaker.exe to create a column for Apparent Temperature (it already knew about RH). This is for the "generate images" button in NDFD.
Please let me know if you have problems.
