Problem with xancil

Description

Hi Jeff,

Sorry to bother you, but I am having problems using xancil to create one of my many ancillary files. It is generating an error I haven't seen before.

I am trying to use it to convert my newly created .nc file into UM format, specifically soil parameters (at /home/d05/cwilliams/gc31/final_ancils_round2/soil_parameters/hwsd_vg on NEXCS), I have made it in exactly the same way as before, when it worked. Following your instructions, from a long time ago, I am using the "Generalised Ancillary Files" option, however when I select the first field, click "Update" and try to select the field, I get the following error:

extra characters after close-quote
extra characters after close-quote
    while executing
"set newlongname [lindex "{VOL SMC AT WILTING AFTER TIMESTEP} {VOL SMC AT CRIT PT AFTER TIMESTEP} {VOL SMC AT SATURATION AFTER TIMESTEP} {CLAPP-HORNBER..."
    (command bound to event)

What does this mean? Have I done something wrong to my input file? I don't think so, because it is identical to when I did this before, other than the actual values. Moreover, when I try to do the above on the soil dust ancillary (created the same way) it works fine.

Thanks a lot,

Charlie

Hi Charlie

This looks like a bug in the latest version of xancil. I will look into fixing it, but in the mean time you can try using the previous version. Just type xancil0.57 and it should work as before.

Thanks very much Jeff, that works fine.

Incidentally, and just for your information, the latest version doesn't have the previous bug you identified, in which clicking on okay after selecting the field appear to remove it. Just so you know.

Thanks a lot, I will close the ticket…

Charlie

Hi Charlie

The bug should be fixed, I have updated the xancil executable on monsoon so you should be able to use it now.

Jeff.
