For the question in the subject, WUHU is not really a replacement for
HWP. The use of HWP is to edit the look of the weather data being
published to your web page.
WUHU is actually a weather data parsing and uploading program to
Weather Underground (WU) and the Citizen Weather Observer Program
(CWOP) services on the Internet. CWOP gathers data and also monitors
the quality of the data for meteorological institutes to use them in
For the problem you are experiencing, it may be that the HWP is
suffering a similar problem I had previously.
Apparently HWP is giving you an 'Error' as publishing result? If this
is the case, moving the mouse pointer over the 'Error' text will give
you a reason why it failed.
Is it giving you a 'The data area passed to a system call is too
small' or similar looking error message?
This is a common error condition I've come across many times. I
rectified the situation by uploading an empty file, having the same
name as the failed file HWP was trying to publish. Then HWP succeeded
in publishing it.
For reasons unknown, HWP checks if the file already exists, deletes
the file and then uploads it. If any step before the upload fails, HWP
goes bananas and gives you the cryptic error message as mentioned above.
In my opinion, this is a severe bug in HWP that needs addressing. If a
file does not exist in the server, it should be uploaded without doing
any additional checking.
Hopefully this gives some light for you and for the other members of
the Group, sorry about the half-off-topic reply. :)
