Workspace Method ppathCalc


Stand-alone calculation of propagation paths.

Beside a few checks of input data, the only operation of this
method is to execute ppath_agenda.

Propagation paths are normally calculated as part of the radiative
transfer calculations, and this method is not part of the control
file. A reason to call this function directly would be to obtain a
propagation path for plotting. Anyhow, use this method instead
of calling e.g.*ppathStepByStep directly.
