Resource: watch_path

Resource watch_path
Command Line -wp=path
Environment Variable wxpwatch
Default Value the current directory

The watch_path resource specifies the directory where severe weather watch files are located. This is a resource only available to the name convention module since the rad program has two types of input data that can be plotted simultaneously. If the radar and watch data are in different directories, the watch_path can be used to distinguish between the watch data and the radar data which is stored in the data_path directory. Generally, this path is prepended to files specified via the filename resource or used within the in_file  and out_file resources. The file name convention wildcard is %W.
