Re: MC description problem. mkdes can solve it.

Hi Anton,

My tool mkdes can be used to generate both a Linux (f90) style or a Unix
style of MC descriptor file.

To generate a Linux style descriptor file, do:
mkdes --f90 netCdfFileList

Without the option --f90, mkdes generates a f77 style of descriptor by

It is all in the documentation which can be read by
mkdes --help

mkdes is used routinely in my group. It reduces the tedious work of
making the descriptor file.

Hope it helps.
