When running the GIRASARC command, the following error may occur:
"premature end of file in GIRAS
0 out of 0 records read for last section!
error encountered while reading record 2!
unable to convert file
bailing out of girasarc"
"file does not exist"
The LULC GIRAS files located in the United States Geological Survey (USGS) FTP account don't contain record delimiters; thus, all the data is in one line, which ArcInfo is unable to process.
chop 80 <inputfilename, in brackets> outputfilename
fold -80 girasfile > newfile
dd if=inputfilename of=outputfilename ibs=8000 cbs=80 conv=unblock
Consult the UNIX online help or manuals for precise usages of these commands.
