Dear Sir or Madam:
1)in the file wrfout_d* a see the "Time ulimited currently",every output file of my the Time is always 1, if i need to change the value 1 what should i do
(2) if i want to change the adjustable parameter of physics sheme,after i change the value of one parameter in .F file,should i compile it to .mod file or in integration process WRF will automatically compile .F file to .mod
1) Why would you like to change this metadata value in the file?
2) If you modify a *.F file, you need to go back to your WRF/ directory and recompile the code. This will then overwrite any files created by the original compilation (e.g., *.f90, *.mod) for the file you have changed. It will recreate the new files based on your modifications. Since you are not changing the registry file, you won't need to issue a 'clean -a' or to reconfigure. Just simply recompile, and it should be much faster than a clean/new compile.
