#224 closed help (fixed)

using jview to view pp files

Reported by: anmcr Owned by: willie
Component: UM Tools Keywords:
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 6.1



I've installed jview on my unix system. But I'm having difficulty viewing .pp files. The .pp files were converted from 64 bit um files using convpp. I can visualise both the um and pp fields using xconv.

However, with jview I get the error (after selecting the pp file)

Record length is 131072
record length is 512
file not recognised
%STOP encountered: OPEN FILE

I thought that I may have installed it wrongly. But it looks OK and reads .nc files with out a problem.

Can anyone help?

I had a look a some PP files (created by running ff2pp on UM 64 bit) and Jview seems fine with them. I have

IDL Version6.0.3

So I suggest running ff2pp first. Let me know how you get on.

Hi Willie,

Just to let you know that your suggestion to use ff2pp worked.

Thanks for your help,
