> Description of problem:
> Hello,
> I use the function NetCDF::attget to retrieve informations about an attribute 
> :
> my $l_var = "";
> NetCDF::attget($p_file, NetCDF::GLOBAL, $p_variable , \$l_var);
> But the attribute doesn't exist and I get the following error:
> ncattinq: ncid 5; varid -1; attname "id": NetCDF: Attribute not found
> I've tried to catch the exception with an eval block, but the result is
> the same. My question is: how can I catch the error ?

To prevent error-messages from being written to the standard error stream, call 
"NetCDF::opts(0)". This will also prevent process termination by the netCDF 

To determine what attributes exist for a variable, call "NetCDF::attinq()".

To determine if an attribute exists, call "NetCDF::attget()" after an initial 
call to "NetCDF::opts(0).

The guide to the netCDF-2 API can be found at 
<http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/old_docs/really_old/guide_toc.html>. The 
netCDF-2 API is the basis of the NetCDF-Perl module.
