Re: [ferret_users] Ferret core dumping with this data set

Hi Mike,
This seems to have to do with the size of the grid the data's on. It may be a Ferret bug, but notice that if you're just doing graphics with the data, the size in T of 59359 points is much larger than the graphics device or file is going to be able to represent.  You can plot this data successfully by striding it. If you have 800 pixels available, striding in L by even as much as 50 points gives more pixels than we have.

yes? SHADE echo_intensity_beam2[L=1:`echo_intensity_beam2`:50]
yes? ! SHADE more variables ...

I'll check and see if I can find out exactly why the plot fails without strides.

Can someone help me understand what's wrong with my data set that's causing Ferret to crash when trying to plot the second variable?  Here's the terminal capture:
