ok to post these to mail list.
John, This doesn’t seem like the kind of question to post to the CF board. According to the Unidata website _http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/ncml/_ a netCDF-3 file can be created using NcML. Can you create a netCDf-4 file too? Using the NetCDF-Java library, you can also use NcML to create a new netCDF-3 file, similar to the *ncgen* program.
1. Using a text or XML editor, create the NcML file with an "xml" or "ncml" file extension. Open the NcML file with *NetcdfDataset.open()*, then call *ucar.nc2.FileWriter.writeFile()* 2. In the _ToolsUI_ <http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf-java/v4.0/webstart/netCDFtools.jnlp> application, open an existing NcML file in the NcML tab, or create a new one. You can edit and save the NcML with the *"Save NcML*" button. You can create the equivilent binary NetCDF file with the *"Write NetCDF*" button.
Thanks. MIke */"This information is only intended for the use of the individual or entity named in this email.
