gribtonc question (fwd)


Steve,

I have been trying to execute Gribtonc without much luck.  I downloaded
an NGM grib file from the CPC web site and executed the following
command:

       gribtonc ngm-g.cdl /data1/test.nc < /data1/ngm.T00Z.pgrb.f00

When I run the command a prompt immediately comes up indicating it did
nothing and test.nc was not created in the /data1 directory.  I tried
also with the ngm-q.cdl file but to no avail.  Any help would be great.



Robert,

I'm sure you build the netCDF distribution ?  Therefore "ncgen" and
"ncdump" utilities are available.  As user LDM try:

% ncgen -o /data1/test.nc ngm-g.cdl    # should create test.nc
% ncdump /data1/test.nc                # check the contents of test.nc

The ncgen and ncdump utilities need to be in the path for the LDM.

For sanity sake, check the /data1/ngm.T00Z.pgrb.f00 raw grib file by;

% gribdump /data1/ngm.T00Z.pgrb.f00 | more


Robb...




Thanks

Robert Boucher
