Setting up the Tutorial Environment on Seneca (NCAR)
The following instructions should be run if configuring the shell environment to run the METplus Tutorial on Seneca (NCAR). If you are running on your own computer or a NOAA machine that has been set up to run the tutorial, please go back and click the appropriate link for those instructions.
Create a Working Directory
Create a directory called 'METplus-4.0.0_Tutorial' to hold all of the files you will create during the tutorial. This can be any directory that you have write permission.
In the following instructions, change "/path/to" to the directory you chose: EDIT AFTER COPYING and BEFORE HITTING RETURN!
Change directory to the location where you want to put your tutorial files.
Create a directory called METplus-4.0.0_Tutorial.
This directory will contain all of your tutorial work, including configuration files, output data, and any other notes you'd like to keep.
Change directory into the tutorial directory.
Create Directories for Configuration Files and Output Data
Obtain the Tutorial Setup Script
Copy the tutorial setup shell script to configure your runtime environment for use with METplus. You will also copy over a METplus .conf file that you will use to run:
cp /d1/projects/METplus/METplus-4.0.0_Tutorial_Files/tutorial-4.0.0.conf ./tutorial.conf
Run the command that corresponds your default shell.
DO NOT RUN BOTH SETS OF COMMANDS.
If you are unsure which shell you are using, run the command "echo $SHELL" to check.
If you are using bash:
cp /d1/projects/METplus/METplus-4.0.0_Tutorial_Files/METplus-4.0.0_TutorialSetup.seneca.bash ./METplus-4.0.0_TutorialSetup.sh
If you are using csh:
