Known bugs and miscellaneous inconveniences

  • 1. Tidal analyses and predictions with sampling intervals < 60 seconds don’t work( sequence error) ! To be fixed in the next release.
  • 2. Error in all files *-nl+adconst.dat:

Entry S6bbb : 105.12320004 should be 90.12320004.

Please update your files. To be fixed in the next release.
  • 3. Invalid characters in *’.ini file

The contents of the *.ini files are checked for characters which might cause an read-error in Fortran. The only special character which will pass this check is the ° – sign. However, it might happen that the °- sign is accompanied by a ^-circonflex causing the program to stop. In this case, it is recommended to discard all °- and other special signs in *.ini and replace them by ordinary text like in case of the °-sign by “degree”.

  • 4. Inconsistency in the name of executable *winsil

The name of the delivered executable of program version winsil is et34-x-v74.exe. However, according to the installation guide it should be et34-ana-v74.exe which is the correct name. This naming difference has no effect on analysis but is a flaw which the user might correct. Anyway, it will be taken care of in the next release.

  • 5. Spectral Correlation Viewer (SCV) with frequency dimension cpd delivers incorrect results

Setting the 2nd value of *. ini-parameter DIMESELECT to 1 = cpd delivers wrong results for the SCV. Either you choose 0 instead of 1 –> °/h or you do not apply the SCV tool for the time being. To be fixed in the next release.
