README do say WXSPOT/WxSpot in 5 places.
But
grep -i wxspot utils/utilslog/*

Code: Select all

utils/utilslog/2008241346cumulusutils.log:2020-08-24 13:46:27.660 Prediction : Illegal Forecast system defined - WXSPOT.
utils/utilslog/2008241358cumulusutils.log:2020-08-24 13:58:09.628 Prediction : Illegal Forecast system defined - WxSpot.
OK using ForecastSystem=SpotWx

Greetings Hans

The correct version number is already listed. ;)

I think you have had a success (one more) in choosing SpotWx as your forecasting system; the point is that, despite indicating in cumulusutils.ini that I use that system, in my case it doesn't work. :?

@rogerthn: I don't get your point with your last message. Did you check the zip? I did not make a new release but updated the zip.
There was an error, now its fixed and now it should be in the released zip file.
Both the code and the doc should be OK now as I said in the release post. If that is not so, I really don't know what you are looking at: here everything is OK and as far as I can check it is OK in the zip as well.

@kocher:
Hi Javier, it was kind of sloppy release :oops: but if you write in the inifile: ForecastSystem=SpotWx it should work.

I fixed the documentation (in which I wrote WXSPOT as Roger kindly multiple time remarked ;) ) and I also fixed a minor formatting error in the pwsFWI Current format (which prevented it from being displayed correctly).

Really hope everything is OK now.

The document do say
Set the parameter ForecastSystem to : WXSPOT (case independent)
My first two attempts did fail, as seen below

Code: Select all

utils/utilslog/2008241346cumulusutils.log:2020-08-24 13:46:27.660 Prediction : Illegal Forecast system defined - WXSPOT.
utils/utilslog/2008241358cumulusutils.log:2020-08-24 13:58:09.628 Prediction : Illegal Forecast system defined - WxSpot.
Hence, I do think that all WXSPOT/WxSpot should be replaced with SPOTWX/SpotWx in README?

@rogerthn: Yes, you are correct. Only I point out I already did that and you can find that in the current available zip.
Did you check that one?
