[netCDF #CVX-510046]: convert netcdf to dat

To use netCDF data for calculation in a Fortran program, we provide a netCDF 
Fortran programming interface and library.  You need to install the netCDF 
Fortran library and then call netCDF Fortran 
functions to read the data into Fortran arrays.

There are some example programs for writing and reading netCDF data in Fortran 
by following links
on this page:


You will see examples in Fortran-77 and Fortran-90, corresponding to the two 
Fortran library
interfaces we provide.  The full documentation for the two Fortran netCDF 
libraries is here:


To download, build, and install the netCDF Fortran libraries, you will need to 
follow these


Just to repeat what I said in the earlier response, I don't know of any 
software to convert
netCDF data to .dat format, and I don't believe such software exists.
