[netCDFJava #ECJ-813609]: questions regarding ncDump

Hi Bill,

The options for ucar.nc2.NCdump are different than the options for the C ncdump 
(I'll leave it to John Caron to answer the why on this). Here's the NCdump 
usage message:

usage: NCdump <filename> [-cdl | -ncml] [-c | -vall] [-v varName1;varName2;..] 
[-v varName(0:1,:,12)]

Looks like 2.2.20 has a few more library dependencies. Here's the binary class 
jar files you need when using 2.2.20:


They are all included in netcdfAll-2.2.20.zip.


> I had been using the java version of ncDump as follows:
> java -cp ~/bin/netcdfAll-2.2.16/netcdfUI-2.2.16.jar ucar.nc2.NCdump
> filename -h
> I get exactly the same result whether I use the -h or the -c argument at
