Description

Hi Ros,

thank you for making the MIDL documentation available. Unfortunately, the entries for the individual MIDL commands are not available yet, i.e. the linked entries on this list:

http://cms.ncas.ac.uk/chrome/site/IDL/lib.html

Here's an example:

http://climate.ncas.ac.uk/cgi-bin/midlman?metasplit

This URL generates (for me at least) an error:

Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

This appears for any of the MIDL commands I'm afraid.

It would be great if this documentation would be available again!

Hi Till,

Unfortunately, fixing those links is not currently possible as the script requires access to the IDL installation which the server doesn't have. However, the information on the http://cms.ncas.ac.uk/chrome/site/IDL/lib.html page is identical to running the command "midlman <routine_name>". So for now please use the "midlman" command to access the documentation for each MIDL command.

Regards,
Ros.

Hi Till,

We've managed to get the help pages for the individual MIDL commands up and running on the CMS website again. Simpler than first thought.

Regards,
Ros.
