pssolar: problem with filling of terminators
|Target version:||Candidate for next minor release|
At certain dates/times the filling of terminators fails. Modified pssolar example, "(46) Day-light terminators and other sunlight parameters", included.
The time difference between the two plots is one hour (2017-09-26T11:40:58 vs. 2017-09-26T12:40:58).
Using Version 6.0.0_r18950

Tomorrow, on Jan 10th, the sun rises for the first time since early December in Harstad, Norway. See strange Sunrise/Sunset report for Jan 9th (i.e. Sun never comes up)

Should be fixed. The terminator touched the north pole but did not get further south than -88 or so. Still, gmtlib_determine_pole determined it enclosed the S pole. Curiously, if you dump the path to file and plot with psxy it does the right thing. I added some more checking in the case a pole is touched and now it works. In r20187.
