Hello Mary and Dennis

I installed NCL ver. 6.1.0 successfully last night, and as a result I
have a suggestion. The tarred zipped archive unpacks three directories
(/ncarg, /include and /bin) into $NCARG_ROOT, which in my case is
/usr/share. Since the names of two of these directories are rather
generic, you might consider whether tarring the archive to unpack into
/ncl with three sub-directories might be tidier. I'm not sure if an
overwrite would have occurred if I already had directories in
$NCARG_ROOT called /bin or /include, or whether the unpack would just go
to something like /bin(2) and /include(2). Anyway, I copied /ncarg,
/include and /bin to /usr/share/ncl and all is well.

Thanks again for your workshop.
