Hi I am a graduate student at UTA and having this error as I am trying
to test the NCL installation. I have used the default settings as
directed in the help.

As I type,

ng4ex gsun01n

I get the following error:

NCAR Graphics NCL Example <gsun01n>

This example was set up to display the output to an
X11 window.

  Copying gsun01n.ncl
