[netCDF #SBY-332951]: Netcdf and Matlab: need ncdump

> I am using Matlab 7.10  2010a for Mac OS X which has native Netcdf
> commands. These work well but unfortunately Mathworks did not include ncdump
> and I need to read the headers for using NCEP Reanalysis data.   Under the
> old scheme with USGS toolbox it was fine but no longer.
> There must be some code that does this but I have looked in vain.
> Learning to read Netcdf files with basic fread statements must be
> possible.
> For NCEP reanalysis data there must also be documentation somewhere for
> the offset/scale factor numbers I need, that are in the headers, but
> strangely I can'f find that either.
> Thanks for any help.      Peter Rhines
