RFM Log File
Every run of the RFM will create a file
The file contains 3 types of record:
Status Messages, File Header Records
and Section Header Records.
General status (also printed to terminal)
Info from subroutine ABCDEF
Warning from subroutine ABCDEF
Fatal Error in subroutine
ABCDEF (also printed to
File Header Records
Whenever an input file is opened, first an
status message is printed to the
For this reason, the first record of each input file should contain some
meaningful information. For RFM-specific input files this would usually be a
record beginning with !, indicating a comment.
Section Header Records
Each driver table record containing a
section header (eg *HDR ... )
is also printed in the rfm.log.
Similarly the profile identifiers
(eg *HGT) from atmospheric profiles
loaded in the
section (these are indented a couple of spaces
to distinguish them from Driver Table sections).
These terminate with the *END section marker, after which the outputs
are all status messages.
