The Gflash documentation needs to be updated. The files that it
creates start with "GSEG" and not "GNFB". These files are written to
whatever path the command "ncargpath tmp" reports (most likely
By default, however, these segment files are deleted after WISS is
closed. You need to set the Ngmisc parameter "SS" to something other
than the default value of 1 to cause the segments *not* to be deleted.
For example, you can add the following to your code segment:
*** activate WISS
*** Don't delete segment files
*** start storage of llu plot commands
CALL GFLAS1 (1)
In addition, if you want to change the location and/or the root string
used for the segment files, you can set the Ngmisc parameter "SE".
For example, if you have:
Then your segment files will be written to your current working directory,
with the prefix "GNFB".
For more information on these and other Ngmisc parameters, please see
the man page for ngmisc_params.
We will update the Gflash documentation as soon as possible.
