00/01/31 DEFECT IN PROGRAM pages
SYMPTOM: Catastrophic failure with an integer overflow during testing of
the ultra-rapid orbits.
PROBLEM: One file generated by pages is for the EOP. In this file, the
EOP values are multiplied by a large factor of 10 and printed
as integers; currently 10^6 for the X and Y pole and 10^7 for
UT1. For short data spans, as is common in the ultrarapids,
and at the end of the day, the routine was trying to select
estimated EOP values for the next day (none were estimated
of course) rather than those for the beginning and end of
the current day.
CORRECTION: pmint and ut1int in eopadj.f: Modify the test to trap and
keep EOP values "within" the data span for extrapolating
and conputing values for the pages.erp file.
