Re: [gembud] dcshef and dcshef_comet


The dcshef_comet is the old one written by Peggy Bruehl  that I have
packaged with the distribution for years. I had to rename since NCEP is
now providing their own dcshef along with the OHSHEF library source in
(source code release has the directory).  I created pqact entries in
$NAWIPS/ldm/etc/templates/pqact.gempak_decoders for
both decoders, but  both are commented out by default due to the high
load they
tend to generate.

Good day!

I recently upgraded a box from GEMPAK 5.10.2 to 5.10.4 and all of my dcshef pqact processes started bombing out with:

[22855] 071130/1114[FL -1] Cannot open file /mesonet/data/gempak/coop/YYMMDD_rtp.gem.

Digging around, I see that dcshef's options are radically different and there is something called 'dcshef_comet' which seems to work like the old dcshef did.

Did I miss something on the email lists about this? The "What's New" with GEMPAK 5.10 page has no references to dcshef changes?

Sorry if I am missing something obvious, thanks!
