Re: NetCDF Java "ncgen" method?

Thats funny, i was just thinking about ncgen.

No, unfortunately, I dont have an ncgen parser. The equivilent thing is to use 
NcML, which is just CDL in XML. You can then generate a netcdf file from the 
NcML.

See http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/ncml/

Once you've created the ncml file, you can turn it into a binary file by:

 NcMLReader.writeNcMLToFile()

BTW, I just noticed and fixed a bug in NcML reading, so get latest 2.2.10.

John,

I would like to incorporate into a Java program the functionality of the ncgen program used to convert cdl files to NetCDF files.

The top level need is a data converter program in Java program for UNAVCO users, for converting their existing ascii data files into NetCDF, without them learning cdl and downloading and installing the ncgen program for their system.

Is there a method in the NetCDF-Java Library to mimic ncgen, or something like that?
