DEGRIB: Download

Note!  When degribing Hazards before mid-May(specific date to be added at a later time), please use "-SimpleWWA 3"
Example: "./degrib.exe $GRIB_FILE -C -Flt -Met -msg 6 -revFlt -nMSB -SimpleWx -SimpleWWA 3"

When degribing Hazards on or after mid-May, please use "-SimpleWWA 4" or do not include the -SimpleWWA option at all, as -SimpleWWA 4 is the default.
Example: "./degrib.exe $GRIB_FILE -C -Flt -Met -msg 6 -revFlt -nMSB -SimpleWx -SimpleWWA 4" or
"./degrib.exe $GRIB_FILE -C -Flt -Met -msg 6 -revFlt -nMSB -SimpleWx" 

Please refer to the Man Pages.

  • Note: The tar balls were created using "gnu-tar".  I have found that "aix-tar" does not always play nice with them.

Note: There are 3 flavors of degrib included in all downloads:

  1. degrib, the command line version;
  2. tcldegrib, a version which interfaces with Tcl, and allows one to create command line scripts for automating downloads;
  3. tkdegrib, the GUI version of degrib, which uses Tcl/Tk to make it cross-platform capable.

Where do I go from here?
