Re: GRB and BFR files

Corrado Brigante <corrado@...>

I've downloaded and tried it but it...
It converts the grib example file even if with .grb extension but the tif I've obtained is empty and the program writes "corrupt file"

and what about bufr?

Hello James,

unfortunately you picked the wrong program. this one is not for weather GRIB
files, it's made for HP calculator GROB files which happen to have the same file
extension as the weather GRIB files.

The help text to GROB2TIF says:


GROB to TIFF File Converter

Copyright (c) Hewlett-Packard Company, 1992.


The GROB2TIF application is a program for your MS-DOS compatible personal
computer that converts an HP 48 graphics object (GROB) into a TIFF (Tag
Image File Format) file. TIFF format graphics can be used by word
processors, paint programs, and desktop publishing programs.
