[netCDF #EEQ-473331]: diskless and database

Hello Tony,

Because there are no guarantees that netCDF data is contiguous in memory, there 
isn't really a way provided to access the 'head' of the netCDF data in memory 
via a pointer.  You would need to 'crawl' the netCDF data via the API, querying 
the various variables you have stored.  

I'm sorry I can't provide the answer you were looking for, but hopefully this 
information will be useful.

Have a great day,
