All,

After a long spring & summer working away in my cave on the next major WINGRIDDS release, I came across some more bug fixes for WINGRIDDS as well as an update to the PCGRIDDS32 GRIB ingest utility NGRB2PCG32. Please check out the WINGRIDDS & PCGRIDDS32 Home page winweather.org & check them out.

Thanks,

Post subject:  Can't ingest GRIB Data

Hi Jeff,

I visited this forum yesterday (Saturday, October 20) for the first time in more than a month and noticed your announcements of the release of the latest version of WINGRIDDS. I downloaded and installed it and I did notice an improvement in the appearance of the information text in the upper left corner, especially when I changed it from 1024 x 768 to 1152 x 864 pixels. At 1024 x 768 pixels, I still lose some of the text.

Tonight, Sunday, I ran into another problem when I tried to convert WAFS GRIB Data of the 211800Z run. Normally I download GFS files from the ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.opnl site and of the fh.nnn.tl.press._ar.octantl type. When I selected as usual the WL1 area, it ran briefly and then quit.

I tried it with both GRIB1 and GRIB2 file types but continued to get the same result. Is it the GRIB2PCG32.OUT file that I should send to you so you can analyze what's wrong? Below is what I read in this file.

GRIB2PCG32 FOR WINGRIDDS VERSION 3.7 09/20/2007

SECTOR =
OCTETS.WL1

OUTPUT DATA DIRECTORY: c:\WINGRIDDS\GRIDDATA\
PREPROCESSING WAFS GRIB FILES
FILEIN =
c:\WINGRIDDS\GRIB\WAFS\OctantL\fh.012_tl.press_ar.octantl

fh.012_tl.press_ar.octantl 461086 BYTES
fh.012_tl.press_ar.octantl --- NEW GRIB DATA FILE OPENED

===== BEGIN NEW GRIB EDITION 1 RECORD =====
REC#,SIZE = 1 7124
GRIB MESSAGE # 1
IGRBST,IPTR,NBYTES= 1 1 7124



Please advise how to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance for your reaction!

Fred.

Fred,

Thanks for your message & sorry for your problems. I tried your setup (but with GRIB2 data) and it worked fine for me (of course!). I need more info which I think (hope) GRIB2PCG32 is providing. If you can, run the utility from the MS Windows command line:

c:\> cd wingridds
c:\> grib2pcg32 octets.wl1

When it fails this time, some 'crash' debug information may be on the screen. Please copy the info & foreward it to me.

Thanks in advance,

Hmmmm...One more thing - what operating system version are you running (I should have asked that earlier)?

Thanks again,
Jeff

Fred,

I'm sorry but I cannot recreate your problem on my WinXP system. No one else has mentioned this which makes it even more difficult. An update is being relesed shortly & maybe that will clear up your issue.

Sorry for your problems,
Jeff

Post subject:  Using earlier version of WINGRIDDS

Thanks for your message, Jeff! In the meantime, I uninstalled WINGRIDDS and then installed an earlier version of the program. I'll await the next update, download it and will let you know how it performs on my computer.

Post subject:  Error in NGRB2PCG32 code

Hi Jeff,

I found a bug in NGRB2PCG32. 2.13 is looking at PCGMODE.DAT for the output directory from the first line:

'MENU'
'c:\PCGRIDDS32\GRIDDATA' 'c:\PCGRIDDS32\GRIDDATA'
'METER'
'WORLD'

but PCGRIDDS32.EXE is looking for the start up mode in the first line. So, you need to change the code in NGRB2PCG32.EXE to look at the second line in PCGMODE.DAT for the output file and ignor the first line.
