Sorry, you're not the first...I ran several demos of atmospheric radiative transfer/
constituent retrieval code at a show in Salt Lake City in mid-March. I was running
programs originally developed for an IBM RS/6000 for calculating spectra at various
altitudes, and vertical profiles of temperature, pressure, and component mixing
ratios. I would run the program based on conditions a user specified, and generate
plots (using gnuplot) all within a couple of minutes. The amazing thing was, I was
using a 486/33DX Laptop running linux...it performed flawlessly...
