[UDUNITS #SPR-727026]: udunits question - combining units


I can't verify that using spaces conforms to the CF standard because I don't 
know that standard.

I can verify, however, that units like "meters per second" are perfectly 
acceptible to the UDUNITS package.

> Hello,
> I'm looking at syntax for units here:
> http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/udunits/udunits-2.2.12/doc/udunits/udunits2lib.html#Syntax
> From the examples, it looks like I don't need to convert spaces to
> underscores in my units attribute in a netCDF file. For example, I
> could have:
> variable_name:units = "meters per second" ;
> (instead of variable_name:units = "meters_per_second" ;)
> However, I'm having trouble finding anything definitive in the
> documentation. Will you please verify if I can have a CF-compliant netCDF
> file with a units attribute with spaces in the value?
