This is the program xweather which is derived from wxmap written by Charley Kline. To use this program you need a weather feed and the weather server. To see a sample of how the program works you can connect to a "dummy" server on (port 612). This contains sample data a single hour. Text reports are not avaible from this server.

You will also need to set the libDirectory resource to the correct location. For testing, you can run the program out of this directory and use the following command line.

    xweather -xrm "*libDirectory: ." -xrm "*serverHost:"

You will want to install the application default file Xweather in your app default directory.

To get a weather feed contact Zephyr Weather Information Service (508-898-3511).
