ff2pp on Monsoon (Cray)

UM Version: 8.5


I am trying to convert UM output from fields files to (32 bit) pp. This doesn't seem to have happened automatically after my job completed like it did on the ibm. (in /projects/dacciwa/DACCIWA/xlmm/xlmme)

I tried running
$UMDIR/bin/ff2pp <old_name> <new_name>
as instructed in ticket #1632, however I just get the output
file xlmmea_ph0100 is a byte swapped 64 bit ieee um file
and the program exits leaving me with a 0 byte output file.

Looking at my notes from the cms training course I gather the ieee utility can convert from 64 to 32 bit which would also be fine, but this no longer seems to exist.

Any suggestions for what I am doing wrong or how I can work around this much appreciated.

I just did gmslis@xcml00:/projects/dacciwa/prosen/DACCIWA/xlmm/xlmmg> $UMDIR/bin/ff2pp xlmmga_pe4100 ~/xlmmga_pe4100.pp

file xlmmga_pe4100 is a byte swapped 64 bit ieee um file

and it created a ppfile

gmslis@xcml00:~> ls -l xlmmga_pe4100.pp
-rw-r—r— 1 gmslis users 1179857280 Sep 30 14:42 xlmmga_pe4100.pp

Which files cause ff2pp to fail?

I just did the same thing and everything seemed to work fine. I can't give you an explanation of why it wasn't working before - perhaps I had run out of space?

Obviously feel free to close the ticket
