opening ppfiles xconv/xconvRI81.91

Reported by: ambrogio Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Tools Keywords: xconv global UM pp files prods
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: <select version>



I'm Ambrogio Volonte' and I just started a PhD in Meteorology at Reading with Peter Clark and Sue Gray (project on sting jets).
I write to you because I noticed that typing "xconv -i filename.pp" I can't open global prods UM pp files
(I receive the message "glibc detected xconv: malloc(): memory corruption (fast): 0x000000000137e3e0" ).
Instead, if I type "xconvRI81.91 -i filename.pp" all seems to work without problems. I don't know if that is usual or if there are some problems with xconv.

I am working in RocksCluster? and the files that I use are in the folder

Many thanks for your attention.

Hi Ambrogio,

Sorry for the delay in responding to this.

The error you've seen is likely due to an issue with the older version of xconv. There is in fact a newer version (1.92) which can be found under ~jeff/bin on the Reading home system.

I believe that Dan Bretherton supports the Rocks Cluster. I suggest you contact him to install the latest version centrally.

Best wishes,
