[linrad] RE: Front end for Linrad

You have to have the files *.lir (help.lir and errors.lir) in the
logged dircetory, the one from which linrad is launched.
Please read my previous posting more carefully. You seem to
start linrad from various places because you have found parameter
files at various places.

I have no idea what it would mean. I am reluctant to take responsibility
for maintaining linrad in formats I am unfamiliar with.

But not on the lir files;-)

Actually the best help for me is feedback about practical usage
on various modes and bands. Files recorded under marginal 
circumstances where copy is well below 100% because of interference
or distortions to the signal of various kinds that could perhaps
be treated more cleverly in software.

Sure Linrad would benefit from other programmers getting involved,
but I think it is still a bit early. Real programmers are scared 
away by the "messy code" and all the fixes needed to take care
of timing issues in a single-threaded application. It will become
much easier when these problems are resolved.
