It sounds like you don't have netCDF software installed.  To get or install 
netCDF, you would need to follow
the instructions here:


As part of installing netCDF, the ncdump program will be installed in a 
directory you choose.
You could use ncdump from a different directory by either

  - using the absolute path name, like

       $ /directory/where/it/is/installed/bin/ncdump  my_data_file.nc

  - or add the directory to the list of paths that are searched for commands

       $ PATH=/directory/where/it/is/installed/bin:$PATH
       $ export PATH
       $ ncdump  my_data_file.nc
