General Information about McIDAS-XRD
McIDAS-XRD is a software package available to all McIDAS-X sites, requiring no additional MUG fees. McIDAS-XRD contains research and development commands that are not part of core supported McIDAS-X.
A login name and password is required to download any software. Once you've entered your valid login name and password, you can obtain any other McIDAS software your site is licensed to receive (e.g., McIDAS-X and McIDAS-XCD).
McIDAS-XRD is a package containing research and development commands that are not part of McIDAS-X. McIDAS-XRD can only be used in combination with McIDAS-X, and must be installed after McIDAS-X has been built and installed.
The -XRD software is provided on an "as is" basis, meaning it is not MUG-supported. The software in these packages is submitted by programmers at various MUG sites. The software is added to the package if it may be useful to other sites and it meets some basic code standards.
SSEC McIDAS User Services packages and distributes the -XRD software, but does little or no testing of the commands and does not provide any documentation. Each command's on-line help is all that's available for documentation. McIDAS User Services will forward all bug reports to the programmer that submitted the software. However, there is no guarantee that bugs will be fixed, as it's up to the programmer to decide whether or not to fix the bugs.
