After PALADIN, Pinuts Is New Useful Tools Software

Some utilities have been developed around ALADIN and are now mainly available through PINUTS (Pinuts Is New Useful Tools Software ):

  • a portable version of EGGX (new and old) library with conversions tool (CONEO)
  • a tool to design an ALADIN domain from lat*lon coordinates (DOMOLALO) , another to design domain from scratch (MAKDO), one to make subdomains (SUBDO)
  • a portable version of some tools modules and programs developped by Jean-Daniel (former ECTOplasme, FRODO, EDitField, PSEUDO...)
  • a makefile tool to compile these tools;
  • CHAGAL : plots ALADIN files using NCAR software

domolalo : one of the pinuts tool to create domain giving

South,Nort,East,West and resolution. The created domain contains the "latlon" domain

referenced by South,Nort latitudes and East,West longitudes.
