[netCDF #NCE-670062]: How to produce NcML from a netCDF-4 file



There is currently no way to do this for netcdf-4 files.
It is doable but would take some time.
Your comment about faking classic makes me think that you
are not using a lot of  the netcdf-4 data model.
Can you describe which netcdf-4 features you are using?
